I think they ahve one in my lfs, it was misslabled as a flowerhorn, but dosent look anything like one. I cant really discribe it as i wasn treally paying attention and i looked just enough to think of what it could have been, as it looked nothing like the flowerhorns they were labled as.

Your jaguar is probably too small to breed yet. Wait for it to grow another inch or two.
I also dought that they could breed together, they are not really closly related. Just because they both come from centeral america does not mean that they can breed together. Like saying Lions and Elephants can breed because they come from Africa.

thx but i just found out that they both were females lol.
went to petco and got 3 more small jacks.
3 small jacks living with the bigger jack.
the jaguar was removed to live with my flowerhorn and red texas.
they did good overnight. the jag got in to some fights with flowerhorn but no major damage done.
just some ripped fins thats all.
hopefully get some males in the new bunch of 3.

I dont think so, they are in different genuses (last time I checked). Cross genus hybrids do occur, but they are rare.

like severum boy said they are two different genuses and often do not cross breed, it is quite rare that they will with centeal american and south american cichlids

there are just some fish that cant hybridize for whatever reason, like uaru's, oscars, aequidens, so on... i DO believe these fish can hybridize though.

Of cichlids that readily hybridise JD's seem to be quite reluctant. However I have seen JD x Convict and JD x Green texas(with will both also breed with Jags)so a JD x Jag is not impossible. If you are willing and patient I would give it a try. I have never seen a JD x Jag or even anyone talk of theirs breeding but again its not to say it has not happened.

Good luck :)

considering that we don't have actual pics of your jag and JD can't tell if both are female as the fish shown in the pics are.

I think they ahve one in my lfs, it was misslabled as a flowerhorn, but dosent look anything like one. I cant really discribe it as i wasn treally paying attention and i looked just enough to think of what it could have been, as it looked nothing like the flowerhorns they were labled as.

not all flowerhorns look the same, there are many variants, Zz, Kamfa, Kamalau, Jin Kang, RainbowKing, just to name a few, it was probably a flowerhorn.

I have a baby JD X Jag Hybrid. I just got it about a week ago. If I can get a good pic of him I will post in on here for you. Right now he is in the same tank with a bigger Salvini Chiclid (not BIG, but maybe twice the size of the baby JD x Jag hybrid), but the JDJag punks him out all the time. It's a beautiful fish, and yes....it can be done.
