"When I bought my JD's I only got them because I always heard about them. I put them in a 50 gal tank with some pleco's and a mixed variation of other cichlids. I bought 2 because I didn't want to just get one. Didn't know anything about JD's. But I noticed from the time I had gotten them that they never split up. Very calm and peacefull fish. They never did any mating rituals or anything like that. And one morning I woke up and they laid over 200 eggs on top and wrapped around a skull that I put inside the tank. I'd say about 50 of the eggs got all fuzzy and nothing came out, but the rest of them were wiggling around and now they are all swimming high and all around the tank freely. Dempsey's are a awesome fish to watch raise their fry. They won;t even eat, they just put everything in a stockpile for their young. The female always tries to come at me when I'm scooping out the youngins but when I put my hand in the tank she lets me touch her. Very awesome feeling. As a first time breeder. I still have about 120 babies swimming around the tank. I feed them baby brine shrimp and crushed flakes. Coors are turning out awesome. Although I must say I was never planning on breeding but now I can't take my eyes off the tank."
