| | Re: Thinking about Jaguar Cichlid
Welcome to APC!
A 40 gallon tank isn't nearly large enough for a fish that can grow to 14 inches long! There are a lot of cichlids that are small enough for that tank, and they would be much happier in it than a really large fish.
Our emphasis here is on growing aquatic plants, and having a beautiful layout of growing plants, rocks and "driftwood". Few of us seek to keep fish over 4 inches long.
