    instead of upgrading my SW tank I might trade the blenny for a goby and have a cichlid tank! I like jaguar and wolf cichlids the most and wanted to ask what the min. tank size is for them(males) and some tank mate suggestions! thanks!;D

    I like one kind of cichlid! It is like electric blue with black stripes. I think it is called like a cobalt or something! Cool! Aren't they like really aggressive eaters or something?

    You will need at least a 180 gallon aquarium for the jaguar and 240 gallon tank for the wolf to be able to keep anything with them. Large plecostomus catfish would be OK with these fish.
