Description

Jaguar cichlid (Parachromis managuensis, earlier addressed as Cichlasoma managuense) or managuense cichlid is a large, raptorial, but very beautiful fish, and it is good for large cichlid fans.

Unlike other cichlid fishes jaguar cichlid obtains the most of its color when it becomes reproductive.

For example, the juveniles have noticeable black bands on their body and the mature fish becomes spotted, so due to these spots they got their “jaguar” name.

In the wild managuense fish max size is about 60 cm and it weighs about several kilos. In a tank the fish grows significantly smaller – about 40 cm in length.

Because of its size and aggressive temper it’s better to keep jaguar cichlid separately from other fishes in a biotope which is reminding it the basins of Central America and surely, one should avoid keeping the fish in a tank with small and less aggressive fish as a tank mate.
