Looks like a whole bunch of things right now could even have a green terror. It has an acara type body so the ball park is right.

I guess I will have to wait and see... I wonder if he's not a mix.. he doesn't really look like a green terror to me.. I thought he favored a Jack Dempsey, but the lfs said he was NOT a Jack.... so idk..

Well, your LFS is wrong......it is a female Jack Dempsey, no doubt. The lack of blue on the sides & the blue in the cheek is a dead give away.

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

he said they have alot of them but they are in huge tanks 1000+ gallons and they set traps for them, and because it has been cooler temps the fish are sluggish and not taking the bait. He said if I am willing to wait he will get it, it will just take time. It sounds to me like they have ponds or something. it says farm raised on the website. here's the link www.azgardens.com/
