HELP - What sex is my JD?

Postby s1l3nt_1nc » Thu Feb 11, 2021 2:33 pm

Hello all,

I have had this little guy/gal for little over a month and it has grown quite a bit in that short time. I have read up on how to determine sex of a JD, but I cant quite seem to put my finger on it. Do I have a male or female JD?

Blurry picture, but I can see there's some nice color on that fish. And from what I can tell, it looks like you have a very nice looking Rocio octofasciata, Jack Dempsey Cichlid.
You should definitely take another, better photo and post it up.

With all that blue on the cheeks, it is most likely a female. A male would also have more spangling on the body.
