NFC: Jaguar Cichlid

"Jaguar Cichlid" was commonly known as "Cichlasoma managuense" but I believe
it has been reassigned to a different genus since then.  It is commonly &
cheaply available in pet shops across the country simply as "managuense".
They get quite large as cichlids go, and are on the meaner end of the
spectrum.  I used to breed them in a 135 gallon tank and they literally laid
between 2,000 to 3,000 eggs every time.  They are feirce guardians of their
young, which grow quickly and defend themselves well.  That blotchy pattern
really helps break up their outline when would-be predators are looking at
