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).

"I am disabled so I don't get out much. I've never had a pet before because I didn't think I could properly take care of one. How exciting to find out I was wrong! I've read just about everything on your website, but it was your emails that really made the difference. I felt like I wasn't doing this alone, and I have been sleeping much better because of it. Thank you for everything, and I hope you are rewarded, somehow, for the kindness you have shown me. Thank you."
