Who Wins

Postby Calyxes » Mon Aug 07, 2006 10:21 pm

I just got a 55 gallon fish tank the other day. I was trying to decide which type of fish to get and could not decide against Jack Dempseys or Convicts. So, I decided to get 3 of each and let them battle it out. The lady at the pet store thought he Dempseys would take over the tank but the more I read on the Convicts, the more I am starting to think they will end up taking over the tank. Anyone have any past experience with either fish? If so, who is going to win in this tank.

I would PM mutantseabass and get his advice. He's the best fishman at the cafe. He'll certainly be able to answer your question.

A few months ago I did the same thing and got some Dempseys and some Convicts. The Convicts kicked ass and are currently the only fish in my tank. ;-D

I have kept and bred both fish before. I have kept both species in tanks together before successfully until one started to breed. Which 9 times out of 10 is the Convicts. They will breed like rabbits. Once they lay eggs nothing will get near them in the tank. I have had convicts attack Dovis before and the Dovi was nearly a foot in length. The reason I say convicts also is they grow faster reaching sexual maturity at a much smaller size then the Jacks. Jacks will get larger then the convicts but are no match for a mated pair of convicts. I dont deal with South and Central American fish anymore personally, I have been breeding African Cichlids for years now. Soon you will have more Convicts then you will know what to do with.

I have a friend that breeds Electric Blue Jack Dempseys beautiful fish.

If you ever want to try your luck with African Cichlids give me a holler and I can hook you up with some nice fish cheap.
African Cichlids are more colorful and active then their new world counterparts.

That's pretty cool, I didn't know there were other fishkeepers on the boards...

I've had a 29 gallon freshwater tank for a few years, I'm trying to sell it now(anyone interested?:-b), I'm starting up a 55 gallon reef tank. MSB, ever done anything with saltwater?
