Just bought another one today but to be honest, this one looks nothing like the JD I already had. Looks maybe like a green terror but also can’t rule out JDdepends if there is a male around or if her fry are around. If it is just females only no males then they get along pretty well
This has to be the most unphotogenic fish I’ve ever had I’ve tried on five different occasions to take a picture but every time he sees me he runs up under the rocks I’m going to keep trying thoughlets see.
That’s the best I got so far. The top pic is the JD I’ve had already.lets see.
They're clever lolThis has to be the most unphotogenic fish I’ve ever had I’ve tried on five different occasions to take a picture but every time he sees me he runs up under the rocks I’m going to keep trying though
Ok so then the one I got today is a JD then because he/she has the stripes. Now the one I already had doesn’t have any.They're clever lol
Ok bottom pic see the stripes across the head? Jack Dempsey. GTs don't have that. As juveniles they can look really close.
One of my Jacks
the one up high or in the center? The one in the center looks just like my female JD when she was littleThe first fish the OP posted isn't a JD or a GT, it looks like a Texas cichlid - maybe crossed with something else.
I seen you said maybe a Texas cichlid so I googled it and I’m about 98% sure you’re right. Mines colors haven’t popped like this ones yet but you can see it coming. Other than that they’re identicalPost number 5, top picture. That's not a JD
I saw one the lfs owner son brought in to sell. It was the first time in my life I liked a jd. It wasn't quite this sparkly but almost as night.Btw in the first pic you posted of your JDs, the one in the foreground is a looker
Yes. There are a lot of fish species, especially in the Cichlid world where a fish can take on the alpha male/female role in an aquarium...especially if she's gravid. In nature they chase less dominant females away, but in an aquarium, where do they have to go? So the alpha subject may attack, wound, and even kill their rivals.will female jack Dempsey’s show aggression towards other female jack dempsey’s?
