    I am super bummed because I have wanted to get a Jag for several years now but haven't had the tank to properly house it. Now that I bought a bigger tank I was all vamped up and ready to get one when I found this. I'm trying to find a way around it. Isn't the scientific name of the species in fact Parachromis managuense instead of Cichlasoma managuense? Could this possibly be a way around it if I were to get caught owning one? It also surprised me to see that the Jaguar is on the list but the Dovii isn't!

    I was at the store and they had florida Gar there the other day, I have a tank full of rays but yes different family name(but freshwater), I have had jags, had bass, Move north where its cold and where we have all the cool fish, its not a worry to have a Jag. well other then the car as they are known to fall appart. Some of the new ones are sweet though.
