Petsmart has 2 jet black dempsey ' s tonight, I almost grabbed them but I was on my way to a party. He said there's a 50/50 chance they'd stay black. Anyone know much about them? They are really small right now, maybe 1 inch or so. I might go back and grab them tomorrow.

Black means they are stress. They will be either skittish and stay in one area or they will be extremely mean when they grow up and destroy other fish.

Ive owned 2 in the past and all they did was stay in their little area and guard it.

Well that makes me a little sad, I noticed they were being picked on. I didn't know they were JD'S because I've never seen any jet black before. I guess I'll pass :-(
