Jack Dempsey Cichlid


The Electric Blue Jack Dempsey, Electric Blue Dempsey or “EBJD“ as they are sometimes abbreviated as in the hobby is a selectively bred color form of the popular Jack Dempsey (Rocio otofasciata), a large-growing cichlid that originates from lakes and streams along the Atlantic coast of Mexico and Central America. Unlike the wild form of Jack Dempsey, which is a base grey or black, this color variation exhibits a beautiful, uniform powder blue base coloration interspersed with some black spots, a pattern which typically gets more vibrant as they grow.
