How big is the Jack Dempsey?

It’s almost impossible to sex them at a young age.

Looks like a juvenile to me.

Yeah he/she is still a bit small. Only about 2.5 inches

It's based on the sparkly blue...females have it all the way down to to the gills and mouth while males don't have it as pronounced. So I would guess female.

That's not a Jack Dempsey, it's a Green Texas, Herichthys carpintis. Looks probably female.
