After living in relative peace with a foot long Gibby pleco for a couple months, my male Jag Thor completely snapped and was intent on shredding Mr. Gib. Good thing I was right there during the attack, about 30mins ago. Pulled out Gib, no visible damage. He is now in the tank with the Witch, my female RedTex. She dont like it either(what a surprise) but doesnt seem to bite at him, just some harmless pushing around. I can tell ya for certain that a good size male Jaguar cichlid is not to be taken lightly!

Good thing you were home, I hope the witch decides the pleco is not worth the trouble.

Yes, very good thing I was here. Gib is a good 4ins bigger than the Witch, and she has a much smaller jaw than Thor. She's madder than hell right now, zooming around the tank, gills flared, throwing a fit. I dont think she can hurt the plec, he's a big boy. Thor is one nasty dude though, lightning fast and really knows how to throw down.

Man, you have a knack for getting bad tempered fish! Thor is a nice specimen, maybe time for an updated photo.

I love it personally lol…I like fish with attitude

My male is about 6.75in maybe 7in & I wouldn’t dare put anything in there with him. He gets in these moods where he’ll come out of his ambush spot & stare you down.
