About Jack Dempsey

Jack Dempsey
Jack DempseyFish Keeping Nut
My favorite fish are the Tiger Barb and Jack Dempsey cichlid (Thus my pen name). I spend most of my time with my wonderful family, but try to update this blog on day’s the Oilers lose (Which is all the time) J/K.
When I finally succeeded in breeding a pair of Convict Cichlids. I was only 16 years old and felt like I landed on the moon. I raised the fry and donated them to a pet store once they were large enough. So much fun!
Growing live plants in my tanks was always difficult for me.
