Trying to find out my cichlid truly is a Jack Dempsey

Postby willisamaryllis » Sat Jan 23, 2021 12:42 pm

I recently purchased my first cichlid which was a Jack Dempsey. It was a blue Dempsey which I thought was weird at first, but it did have the shiny blotches that these cichlids have, so I bought it. Upon closer inspection, there has been no mention of a blue dempsey that isn't electric. The fish does look a lot like a blue cobalt zebra, but the pet store did not sell these cichlids and zebras do not have those shiny blotches that dempseys do. What cichlid do I have? https://docs.google.com/document/d/1R3Y ... sp=sharing

100% not a Jack Dempsey. Looks like it could be a Socolofi. If that store was selling that as a Jack Dempsey, I would look for another place to buy your fish or be very careful when making a purchase.
