Sexing of Jack Dempsey

Recommended Posts

Hey guys and girls,

I have a few Jack Dempseys (about 20 lol) most are still juvies but I was wondering how do you determine the sex of a JD? And also how big do they have to be until you can tell?

Any help would be appreciated,

Thanks guys,

Jamie

boys normally have just dots around the face/eyes/chin, girls have more of a smudged blue colour, not the best way to sex them, especially when small

correct, at least 6-10 cm before and this is then only a rule

Girls have blue on their chin more colour on the face

Boys do not have dots or blue in a line from under their eye but have more body colour and appear bigger

but I have had girls that look like boys and boys that were actually girls

the only true way is the one that lays eggs is the girl

watching them from about 5 cm to 7 cm you will see pairs stay together, this is also away
