Electric Blue Jack Dempsey

Occuring from slow-moving, mud-bottom waters, this South American beauty is a true carnivore. Bloodworms, beef heart, and even earthworms are all devoured quickly. Its belligerent personality wanes during breeding as it becomes the ideal parent. Parents take excellent care of and protect as many as 1,000 fry that can be produced by an adult pair during one mating season.

Please note, these fish are extremely small. It is not recommended they be introduced into an aquarium already populated with other aggressive fish. They should be purchased and either held as the only fish in a display aquarium to grow out, or they should go into a quarantine aquarium to be grown out. They are slow growing fish. They are extremely healthy, robust, and colorful, just small.
