Jack Dempsey (Cichlasoma Biocellatum)
The Jack Dempsey is an old aquarium favourite, and it is not surprising when one contemplates the beautiful colouring. Mature fish have a body colour of a deep blue-green with blue spots. The dorsal fin is edged with red.
As the fish matures the colours turn out to be less volatile and brilliant.
It is a hardy species, growing to 7 inches long, and it is an outstanding breeder and parent.
