Has prity much the same sort of behaviour and growth of an Oscar so prity risky long term with most cichlids in a 75g but possible while still young to grow it on with other not too agressive guys.
Can be bred in 75g tanks but long term needs something to suit its max size of 16".

To be honest I can not see anything wrong with your guy.

All the best James

Can be. But then breeding Oscars kill of most stuff in the same tank too.
Some single Jags can be sweathearts if not mixed with stuff they can fit in thier mouths or stuff that looks like them in 6 foot+ tanks.
Agression wise they are not in the same league as some other big Central American cichlids.

:oops: pretty much any big cichlid can turn nasty I guess.

On the other hand my Jag 14" was beeten up by and had to be separated from uropthalmus 12".
I guess most large CA cichlids are pritty nasty to rivals. :)

Thinking more about their behaviour with large none cichlid fish.

All the best James

Not only is it a managuense. It is a very nice one. Good body structure.
