    Now I have to wonder if there is a double meaning in somethingsphishy.com's name or if its just ironic.

    That's strange because I was sold a "neon blue jack" and he looks nothing like yours. I know that colors vary but I've attached pics of mine who is more white with brown and black spots versus the darker colors. It's still a juvenile and about 8 months old.

    to answer your jd growth question, Yes they do grow to the same size as a regular jd. My friend has1 and it's about 6 in. and the color is real intense. I last saw it less than a week ago, and it was as blue as an electric blue hap. When I saw it before that, which was about 8 months ago it was about half an in. smaller and it wasn't as blue. I guess they grow real slow. They do best in a community tank, which his is in right now.

    I think this fish is an EBJD, it does appear to carry the recessive gene. What has started to happen I have noticed is that there are different degrees of how blue these fish are. They are now being breed by many people and the original perfect blue has been compromised. On the bright side these fish are usually stronger and closer to regular Dempsey's, so they live longer and are more aggressive. The crooked mouth is not a good thing. Red parrot cichlid do alright with a crooked mouth. I would not buy fish through the mail. You never know what you will get. I DO RECOMMEND ordering from Jeff Rapps, Tangled up in cichlids online otherwise pick one out at your favorite store, it is worth the extra money. mrdemsey

    I think this thread is more than 3 years old.

    i attached some pics, and what do you guys think? he doesnt look like an electric blue does he? did they send me a regular JD? he does have a slight more color than a reg JD but he is no way "electric"
    hes very small only about an inch
    so whatta ya think?
    When I first got my baby EBJD's they looked just like that, and it almost looks like a female, they tend to be duller and browner when they are smaller, hope that helps, I think it IS an EBJD!!

    Haha, dug up from the grave after 3 years...and then again 7 months later.

    On this actual topic though, not that it probably matters, but an EBJD is not a fish I would buy online (that is if I bought one at all). There is so much inbreeding involved in creating them that at LEAST 50% of the ones I've seen for sale in person have missing parts of/whole fins, deformed mouths, deformed eyes, shortened bodies, etc. If I was in the market for one, I'd hold out to find a really nice one and see it in person before I paid a cent for it.

    I think you just did. I would be interested in seeing the fish down the road to find out if the blue has spread to the body and what happens to the dark markings. You may have a new morph The markings remind me of the ones the female gets while caring for eggs, but this fish is way too small for that.

    I believe that it looks like a electric blue. Have you told the seller the problems you have had with the mouth and not all the coloring you wanted?
