Ive heard that they have weak genes. That means that they die randomly and get sick easily. Sorry to sound negative, just wanted to warn you/let you know.

S/he is very pretty and hope that s/he lives a long happy life.

Thanks, I have heard the same and don't think your being negative only cautions. I look forward to hopefully seeing it grow into a beauty.

Do you happen to know how it was created? A cross between an EBA and a jd perhaps?

No I do not. However I my cousin ordered 2 as well and was told the blue Gene is not dominate and inbreed needed to bring it out hence all the health problems. Hopefully his two can pair off and find out

Agree with you on that one. The full grown ones I've seen are absolutely stunning.

If I remember correctly it's just very selective breeding in JD's, hence the sensitivity. I don't now the exact gene's required to get one EBJD, but I do know to get EB fry you don't want two EBJD's, you want one regular JD and one EBJD

Well I guess if they did it with the ram they can do it with a jd. Good to know.

I think its a regular JD with the blue gene cross a blue JD. I ordered one but the owner closed their shop for a few days and came back to a tank full of dead ebjd.

The fish is very beautiful but I don't like painted stones and unnatural things in aquarium. :)

I also don't like the unnatural gravel I think he would really pop with a fine black gravel.
