so recently ive added my jd to the tank with my salvini.... and things are great. but i have noticed a few things.

my salvini has instantly become a hell of a good looking fish. her colors have popped tremendously. can this be a breeding dress? shes also been showing signs of breeding interest. she constantly follows the male jack dempsey around and every once in awhile swims in front of him and kinda wags her tail at him.

i know that some cichlids lay eggs by themselves or with a another incompatible cichlid. so im wondering if she does lay eggs can they possibly be fertilized? i dont think that this is going to happen but im just wondering.

im certain on the sex of the fish.

the jd pays absolutely no mind to the salvini and swims amongst the tank like he normally would in his old tank.

Many central American cichlid species can interbreed and produce a hybrid.
