I was wondering if there was a specific food that anyone may suggest that would make my Jack Dempsey grow faster?? He isn't quite big enough for feeder fish or crickets yet

Plenty of water changes and varying the food diet will help. Try mosquito larva, bloodworms, commercial foods, earthworms, etc.

Will need more especially water changes.:) If you can get some shrimps, it would be a nice addition to the menu.

I meant raw shrimps bought from markets. Just remove the exoskeleton and feed them straight to the fish. Of course, thaw if still frozen just like frozen bloodworms. I'd do thrice a week water change if I were you.:)
