My little Jack Dempsey does flips?


hello... I have had my jack dempsey for about two months now. He normally chases around the 2 blood parrots that I have in my tank. I have noticed that this past week he has started to kind of lay on his side and do these little flips. He doesn't look unhealthy at all I just didnt know if this is normal behavior for this type of fish?? Thanks


That does not sound normal to me.


welcome to fishlore!
It doesn't sound normal to me either
what size tank is he in?
what other fish are in there?
when was the tank started?
if you fill in your aquarium info under my settings.... it will help us advise some more


Doesn't sound normal at all. What are your water readings?

I've got a Jack in with a PArrot and have no chasing issues.


Sounds like he is suffering from ammonia. What are your water chemistry readings? Do you test the water? If so can you post your results? Maybe we can help you better if you do this.Thank you. I hope the little guy is alright
