Hi. I am not new to fish, but I am new to cichlids.
I rescued 35 cichlids that were going to the trash. (remodelling fish shop.)
I have them in a 55g, and will upgrade to 3 x 55g next month.
All fish are 1-2 inch.
Now, I have definately some 8 jack dempseys, but I also have 4 striped fish that have the SAME irredescant colour as the JD's, and the same black spots, but are very striped like convicts.
Can anyone shed some light on this?
Is there a crossbreed, or some age that JD's go thru that they show dark stripes?
Yours..... waiting......
Ian
