    EBJD growth and true max size

    I see dozens of posts about EBJD, but it seems quite hard to find any full grown adults. In fact I find it near impossible to find pictures of any much bigger than 4”. This is mine, a little over 5”, around 14 months old. If anyone has any pictures of bigger ones, or can give a good idea of...

    EBJD x Platinum Jack Dempsey Attempt

    I'm going to see if I can pair an EBJD with a Platinum. My Platinum JDs are large enough that they could start to breed, so I took Jexnell's EBJD and put it in the tank with my Platinums. Crossing fingers, b/c the platinums are quite a bit smaller than the male EBJD. He's chasing them all...

    EBJD Value?

    i recently purchased an Electic Blue JD from my LFS (I actually work there). I paid roughly $24 for him. My question is, how much will he be worth at full size? He has amazing coloration, excellent fun shape, and I’m 99% sure he’s a male, even at just 1.5”. So what will his value be at say 6”...

    EBJD eye issues, any advise appreciated!

    Hi all, My EBJD is developing an issue with one eye. I don't think this is popeye, but please correct me if I'm wrong. His eye has started to get what looks like extra tissue around it. He is not acting abnormal, and it doesn't appear to bother him. Water parameters are good. 0 ammonia, 0 no2...

    My Incredibly Beautiful Electric Blue Jack Dempsey ( ebjd )

    This is the largest fish in my fish room, he is also the meanest fish I have ever owned. He will not tolerate any other creature in his tank. Even snails fall victim to his wrath. So, he lives alone! However, he is incredibly smart and beautiful. When he passes I will probably cry, and he will...

    Hand feeding My Electric Blue Jack Dempsey ( ebjd )

    I thought that it would be fun, though a bit scary, to hand-feed worms to my 8 inch long Electric Blue Jack Dempsey. He is everyone's favorite fish, but he's a bit of a bully. So, he lives in a tank by himself because he eats anything that goes in with him. It's a great video that I am sure you...

    Breeding an EBJD???

    Question: Someone mentioned to me I may have gotten lucky and have a very genetically sound EBJD bc he/she is growing so quickly and its temperament is more aggressive than most EBJD, closer to a regular JD. They also suggested I should try and breed him. I have never on purpose bred anything. I...

  15. Brittanirdh


    So I got my 125 gallon. Plan to move my EBJD, 1 angle, 3 Pictus cats, remaining long fin danios, and nerite snails to this tank once I get it up and running. The EBJD are obviously blue, and the angle is blue/silver/black/red/golden depending on its mood, danios are silver/yellow, Pictus silver...

    Stocking advise

    So, I have my 70 gallon with 2 EBJD babies, 1 veiled angle, 10 long fin danios and 2 nerite snails. My husband wanted a pictus to complete the tank. When I purchased the pictus the LFS talked me into a group of 3, and against my better judgement, they convinced me this would be fine for my set...
