Regarding a Jaguar

Hi guys! -So I have a Jaguar/Mayan/Atzec whatever you call em' Cichlid in a community tank as of right now. She is just a baby and doesn't seem aggressive at all. Along with her, I've got two Zebra Cichlids in the tank, and if my Jaguar, Hades, were to demonstrate behavior she's just swim really fast over to just my other cichlids.
I've had them about 2 months, and watched them all interact a considerable amount if time. No issues.
Now, should I expect future aggression of any kind? Or will them being socialized like this as youngsters be enough to curb bad behavior?
Side note, when she does get large, I'm planning on moving all fish into a smaller aquarium and possibly developing that one into a strictly Cichlid tank.
Just wondering if a bad behavior is going to develope and when to expect it.
Any input anyone?

Re: Regarding a Jaguar

I hear they will get aggressive when they get larger. Also hate to be a downer but, the jaguar won't be able to live in a 55 gallon for it's life. They grown to about 16 inches if I remember correctly.

lol now now, food is "healthy" at school now. Pigeon isn't healthy
if it's dry let it die,if it's wet make it a pet!!

Re: Regarding a Jaguar

i am assuming that the 2 zebra cichlids are the rift lake which case the jag does not belong in with them ; or vice versa.these fish (although both cichlids) have very different water parameter requirements.
both species can get very aggressive.the jag is primarily a carnivore.the zebras are aufwuchs feeders..aufwuchs is an algae that grows on the rocks and also has small bugs and inverts in it that the fish feed on.
different conditions and different diets.
it would be best to keep them separated.
