Jack Dempsey (Rocio octofasciata)


Jack Dempsey (Rocio octofasciata) is a cichlid species that is widely distributed across North and Central America from Mexico south to Honduras. Its common name refers to its aggressive nature and strong facial features, as opposed to the famous boxer Jack Dempsey of the 1920s.

The fish is native to Mexico and Honduras, where it is found in slow-moving waters, such as swampy areas with dry, muddy water, weedy, muddy and sandy canals, drainage ditches and rivers. It is also known as an introduced species in Australia, the United States and Thailand, possibly as an escapee aquarium. They are locally known as the Mexican Blue Frontosa.

Jack Dempsey is native to a tropical climate and prefers water with a pH of 6 to 7, a water hardness of 9 to 20 dGH and a temperature range of 22 to 30 ° C (72 to 86 ° F). Males can be up to 10 in age. It's carnivorous, eating worms, crustaceans, insects and other animals.

Ack Dempseys lay their eggs on a flat hard surface within their territory, such as a rock, a log or a glass bottom of an aquarium. Like most cichlids, they show a great deal of parental care: both parents help incubate the eggs and hold the fries when they hatch. Jack Dempseys is considered to be attentive parents, pre-chewing food to feed their offspring. Nevertheless, it is not rare for them to eat their fries when the breeding pair is too upset or something is wrong with their climate.

The fish is a common aquarium fish because of its striking appearance and its lovely mannerisms. Like most cichlids, it is considered "noxious," but it can be carried out in a well-populated reservoir, preferring to be more territorial if it is held with only a few other fish, thereby allowing it to easily create and protect a "territory" in a reservoir. Jack Dempsey's cichlids can often seem shy, hiding in cave work.

It is recommended that the Jack Dempsey Cichlid has plenty of places to hide. They will often first claim a cave and be very rude to other tank mates who swim near their home. There is also a blue version of this fish commonly known as the blue Jack Dempsey or the electric blue Jack Dempsey. It's a natural genetic mutation. The blue counterpart is less aggressive, smaller and more delicate.
