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 just wanted to say that your page is AMAZING! I am always so indebted to people who take the time and effort to share this information so freely. Thank you! My 12 year old and I started our first tank yesterday and I could not be happier with the help that we got from your page. You made us a believer of Small and Frequent Water Changes! :)"

"Thank you so much for a brilliant site, the advice has been spot on and made the cycling process really simple. I have very happy healthy fish, with spot on water parameters."
