Well a 100 gallon tank is 60" X 18" x 20" and the Jaguar is a going to grow to anywhere from 16" to 24" so I'm gonna say the tank is too small for a jaguar by itself. It'll barely have room to turn around in and that's if it stays on the small side.

As Ty said ,the jaguar will eventually get too large and at that point you will be hard pressed to find it a suitable new home in the event that you are unable to provide a larger tank. The 100 gal would house it for some time but if you could not upgrade to a larger tank what would happen to the fish that you will no doubt have become attached to? Very few I suspect would be willing to take it .

Going with standard dimensions you're going to want at least a 180 gallon for a Jaguar. 24" of depth still isn't a lot of turning around room but its as good as you're going to do until you get into a big custom tank.

I would stock it with one Albino Oscar and One tiger Oscar, And one Red oscar. All preferably at a younge age.

Mine grew up together and Couldnt stand to be without each other. Was in a 75gallon

R.I.P

75 Gallons is way small for three 12" to 16" fish. Even with massive filtration there's just not enough physical room for them.
