I had a supposed Jack Dempsey that I got rid of a few years ago. I went to one of those small pet shops and bought what just said "cichlid" for $2. The lady said she wasn't sure but thought he was a Jack Dempsey. I had no idea what I had and gave it away about a year ago. I was surprised to see what Dempsey's looked like, nothing like I had in my tank. We had ours for a year in its own tank and I loved having one of these. Wish I had known what I had.

    I'm pretty sure these are fairly common, I think they have them at a local PetSmart. Not that PetSmart is the greatest place to get them.

    I'm not sure what I saw actually was a red hump eartheater. Seems strange since they're fairly rare. Could've been a Suriname eartheater.
