    hi all, I have a question about jack Dempsey color. My Jack is black based color most of the time but right around feeding time she/he changes to a wickedly cool white color with the iridescent blue spots. my question is "is this sudden changed to white normal?"

    please note these pictures where taking in the transition from the switch from black to white back to black... she will turn whiter than this picture. and than darker than the other.

    Cichlids change colors depending on their moods. I do not have a JD, but I have several others that turn almost black at certain times and then the next time you look they are back to purple and red. I think it adds to their mystique.
