Welcome to the forum! There's plenty of information here. You may want to read up on cycling your tank in preparation for fish to prevent future deaths. For some reason, fish stores are notorious for misinforming people and selling them fish before they are ready. You should also research the tank requirements for the species of fish you are interested in. Ask a lot of questions. People are very helpful here.

Hi and welcome to AA!
Queensland here
Here are some links on cycling.
http://www.aquariumadvice.com/articl...now/Page2.html
Fish-in Cycling: Step over into the dark side.
The (almost) Complete Guide and FAQ to Fishless Cycling
Cycling a new tank is very important. It is the process of growing bacteria in your filter to process your fishes waste.
Do you know how big your tank is? I have a 2 foot aquaone tank and it's 65L.

Is this the tank you are planning to keep the Jaguar Cichlid in? Or is this just a starter tank for other fish to get your head wrapped around fish keeping?
I've just done some reading and it seems a full grown male Jaguar Cichlid need a tank of 120gals+ thats nearly 500L.
