    As the title says I'm looking for a tank mate that can survive the onslaught from my jag. She is about 20cm now and has basically attacked everthing that I have thrown in there. Can you get toys for a fish?

    Thanks

    Hi ATV

    Please update your location so we can see where you from.

    A good start would be a fish that's bigger than your jaguar and preferably a cichlid.
    I think a green terror would be a good tank mate, they don't take $h%t from any fish.

    Might try a green terror, only problem will be finding one that is fully grown. Any idea where I could get a piranha? Ha ha

    thats not a good idea for very aggresive fish, especially one on its own....will most likley lead to the fish killing itself against the glass and its reflection.

    A red devil fish could also work. or a large giant gourami. i have found them to be very aggressive

    Silver Arowana would be be good bet too. I've seen this thing mess up Oscars.. also can try a large enough Parrot fish. don't be fooled by the puffy face. it can do some serious damage when being threatened :). even kill its attacker
