Mature Jack Dempsey is a beautiful fish. The adult will have a dark purple-grey background contrasted with iridescent light blue, green, and gold spangle spots all over its body. Male Jack Dempsey's tend to have more of these brilliant spots than females, and also present bright red edges on their dorsal and anal fins. In addition to the baseline colouring, many captive bred colour varieties have also been developed and are available today.

South American Cichlid. It is stocky and compact in shape but can grow to almost 10 inches (25 cm) in length.
