Write a Review

The Electric Blue Jack Demsey is a uncommon but natural variant of Nandopsis octofasciatum. Adorned in brilliant blue, this showcase cichlid is typically smaller and reported to be less aggressive than its popular counterpart. Highly sought after over the years, supply is always limited due to this being a somewhat difficult variety to breed and the fry can be challenging to raise. This listing is for two unsexed juveniles. The Electric Blue Jack Dempsey requires an aquarium of at least 29 gallons, and prefers a sand or gravel bottom. There should be rocks and roots for them to hide among. The plants should be hardy as the Electric Blue Jack Dempsey will burrow around and attempt to shred them. We raise our Electric Blue Jack Dempseys in a Ph of 7.8 with a 200+ PPM hardness. This works for the tap water that most hobbiest in the Untied States use. All of the fish offered in this listing will be a minimum of one inch or bigger.We only sell Electric Blue jack Dempseys that we purchase from a local fish farm that specializes in Electric Blue Jacks in order to ensure our customers the best quality. We do not sell any Electric Blue Dempseys that are imported from Asia as we have seen various levels of quality that is not always up to standard for such a beautiful fish. Please note, this is not a beginners fish. We recommend keeping these in a tank by themselves at 85 degrees until they reach at least four inches. They are not a species that handle other cichlids well until they have reached that size. Please do your research on this fish before buying so you can be sure you are set up properly to raise this fish beautiful fish.
