is it a good idea to have a Jag cichlid and an Oscar living together, my Oscar is about 9 inches long and the fish I'm planning on introducing is a bit bigger probably about 10 inches, anyone had any experience with the two together. i know both are aggressive but not sure how it will pan out..

Every fish is different, and it may work.

But chances are the Jag is going to bully and kill the Oscar.

No not a good Idea. IMO.

I currently house two 10' Oscars with a 3' Jaguar.

The Jaguar comes out to eat during feeding time and then hides in his cubby hole. It gets picked on by the flowerhorn and trimac. The Oscars leave it alone but are agressive towards each other.

Soon as the Jag become too agressive, I'll move it to my 100 gallon tank. Currently they're all in my 135 gallon.
