these guys are nicer, but mine has the jack D attitude. at first, when he was pale, he was real nice and didn't bother any tank mates. now that he darkened in color and fins grew out, he is bullying some of the tank mates, just chasing, nothing fatal. I hear they get duller in color as they age, I find that to be opposite, everyday I think he gets more brilliant in blue, could be the color enhancing pellets from hikari. I have 2 of these and the other BJD is still pale in color, dunno why that one isnt changing like this one. anyone know about these guys, I want to breed this with a regular JD, but was told it is impossible in a tank.

That second pic is really dramatic--the fish looks ominous like a shark coming out of the shadows. Very nice fish indeed!

right now he is almost 4 inches, maybe more, havent done an accurate measurement. I hear they only reach 7 inches or so, but I've seen pictures of some that reached 10 inches, but could of been exaggerated. I have never seen any bigger than mine, in fact I have only seen it one other time, at a LFS that was selling it for 100 bucks at 2 inches! I would guess theyre rare but not that rare, they come around once in a while. you really have to see it in person, if you live in southern california, I would gladly welcome you to see it. I hope to keep it for as long as I can for I think it was the greatest find in fish. I wasnt into cichlids before I saw this specimen and immediatly bought it, not even asking the name or how I should prepare the tank for it, I assumed it was an electric blue that looked darker. but its doing great in my community tank with several different species of fish such as bichirs, ATFs, datnoids, arowana, and a turtle. my blue demp is the most aggressive of all these fish, which are by nature not that aggressive like the jack dempseys are.

How old is he at 4 inches. I've been contemplating a Blue Dempsey as my next addition. Sweet Fish Wink
