    I was wondering if it was possible breeding a jack dempsey with a jaguar cichlid???
    if so what would they look like???
    they are both central american cichlids.

    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.

    its ok.
    im am currently trying to breed my jd with my jaguar.
    i know that my jaguar is a female but not sure about the jack dempsey.
    my jack dempsey and jaguar cichlid is the same size both at 3 in.
    my jack dempsey also has a red forehead is that normal???
    could it be a female??
    they hang out together but sometimes they get into fights.
    i will find pics on what they look like.


    my female jaguar looks the this:

    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.

    should be fine. ive seen both fish hybridize sucessfully, so i dont see why they couldnt do it together.

    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.
