I had a tank of 7 2in EGJDs. I received then at around an inch. I am starting to think these are worthless fish. Reading all the eating trouble people are having with these fish. I lost one of my fish 2 days back I am currently watching that tank real close. I have a 4 1/2 to 5in EBJD and he is the one I have been talking about the past 11 months. I picked him up at about an inch. He's a good eater never was able to get his eggs to hatch with a common. All he dose is hide now. I am thinking about forgetting the whole breeding idea on these fish. Just walking by the tank he freaks out. As you all know stressed fish aren’t growing to breed. I moved him into my 90 gal with his mate and the GT in the avatar to leave that tank open to try to pair off some of my other JDs. Oh, If your interested in mixing GTs with a EBJD. In my case the GT does not like the EBJD at all but gets along fine with normal JDs. At this point these fish seem to be shy and brainless. They hide from everything and stop eating at the drop of a hat. If you do make it to the final stages and breed an EBJD with a common that has the Blue jean, plan on a 15% turn out on EBJDs. The pro breeders destroy all the commons so the blue jean does not make it into the normal bloodline. I think I would rather have the fish they are destroying. I bet they have personalities? For those of you who have had these fish please reply on your experiences with them. Maybe there is a lot of positive stuff I am not aware of. This would be a good spot to repost all the negitive stuff I have been reading as well. I'm not giving up I am just mad right now and concerned about what I have been reading. I made this post for those of you who are thinking about buying an EBJD. Be warned about what you’re getting into.
