I posted an earlier poll asking: which do you prefer? Texas Cichlid or an Oscar.

Now I just wanted to know which cichlid ya'll prefer: Texas Cichlid or Jaguar/Managuense Cichlid?

For overall looks, texas. For personality, jag. But a large male green tex is hard to beat. I voted tex.

So, who has the nastier temper? I've never really had the chance to see a jag grow into adulthood but a Texas I've seen. I don't really know how an adult Jag acts when it's more mature.

Depends on the individual fish, the tank size and tankmates. I've had males of both species that were mellow. My current male tex is about 7" and a complete pussycat.

I voted jag but that 14 inch H. carpintis 'Escondido' that Mojo had on the cover of Tropical Fish Hobbyist was something else. I have one, and I have a jag. The jag is more personable and that is what I'm after. As far as looks an 'Escondido' texas is hard to beat.

Maybe if I could find a similar size Jag, I can place it with my Tex and compare them as they grow together.
