The Electric Blue Jack Dempsey is natural color variant of the common Jack Dempsey cichlid that has been selectively bred to fix their striking iridescent blue and black coloration. They're generally considered to be less aggressive, and stay slightly smaller than the common 'wild type' Jack Dempsey.
Electric Blue Jack Dempsey grow to 8 inches in size, and may be kept in aquariums of 55 gallons or larger. Like other new world cichlids, they prefer soft and acidic water conditions, though they're very hardy and adaptable. They are semi-aggressive, and should be kept with other similarly large and aggressive fish.
Electric Blue Jack Dempsey are mostly carnivorous, and should readily accept prepared flake or pellet foods in addition to frozen or live options.
