Jack dempsy's locking jaw... help!!
I have two dempsys i have had them for about 2 years now they were bought as a breeding pair, but have never breed before. I noticed this morning that the male had some fin nips and the female was shaking around alot, im guessing that this is the mating call persay. The male has been doing this for the whole time i have had them. My female jill never really took any notice of him. I am a little worried because they seem to have some small cuts just above their mouths. should i worry??

Turns out that they were breeding after all... i checked up on them at about 1am last night and to my suprise Jill was laying her eggs on the outside of a big terra cotta pot with a little door on the front, i expected them to lay on the inside but to my delight she decided to p

What is my cichlid?
Hello, I am new to this site and am hoping somebody could tell me what my 'Henry' actually is!!

We have had him for just under a yeah and we absolutely love him to bits but sadly we know nothing about him.

We were told when we got him that he was an American Cichlid...but this is all we know.

If anyone could possibly tell me what he actually is I would be very greatful.

I have an image of him on my aquarium log. I dont know how to put photos up I said I am new. hehehe

Merry Christmas btw!!!!
