1st---tank size and filter system? 2nd-- how big are the jags? after that i'd say most larger plecos should be fine. but remember jags can get quite large. they will easily outgrow a 55. personally i would keep it a jag only tank(with a pleco or two), when they get older will be beautiful fish. if aquascaped well you won't really need tankmates.

+1 and jags get HUGE. Up to 16in sometimes even a little bigger. I wouldn't keep them in anything less than an 180 when full grown. They will use every bit of that space.

Rubber ball's, chew toy's for dogs :lol:,inline heater's rather than those placed in aquariums,stick on glass thermometer's, large driftwood branches,smooth riverstones,substrate depth no deeper than two inches to allow gravel vaccuming to be more effective.
