Jack Dempsey

A healthy - and interested - adult jack Dempsey ("Cichlasoma" octofasciatum). These fish get fairly large and can be quite aggressive, but they also will interact with their owners (and that can be very rewarding).

"Just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU !!! Your site is the most informative and objective one I've found. This is our first large(ish) tank and by following your advice we have just this evening introduced our first fish. There is so much info out there, well meaning I imagine, but conflicting and confusing to the beginner. By reading and referring to your advice and wisdom, it has made this new adventure a delight! Looking forward to many years of tropical fish enjoyment."
