Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Jack Dempsey is a cichlid fish that is widely distributed across North and Central America (from Mexico south to Honduras).Its common name refers to its aggressive nature and strong facial features, likened to that of the famous 1920s boxer Jack Dempsey.The fish is native to Mexico and Honduras where it is found in slow-moving waters, such as swampy areas with warm, murky water, weedy, mud- and sand-bottomed canals, drainage ditches, and rivers.It is also established as an introduced species in Australia, the USA and Thailand (presumably as an aquarium escapee).show more
