    Electric Blue Jack Dempsey's!

    The Electric Blue Jack Dempsey is an amazingly colored cichlid that's full of personality! Its name refers to its strong nature and physical features like that of the famous 1920's boxer, Jack Dempsey.  Check out the pictures below and see this "knock-out" fish's resemblance for yourself!

    The Electric Blue Jack Dempsey is native to South America in slow-moving or murky waters such as canals or rivers.  The colorations change depending on gender, age, and the particular situation it is in.  Not only are its shifting colorations beautiful, they also work as this fish species' very own language.  Hierarchy, too, is determined by color observation in this African Cichlid's own community, making it a rather sophisticated and intelligent species of fish.  Electric Blue Jack DempseyThe colors can range from electric blue to light blue-gray with iridescent spots, with females having a more subdued coloration.  Good tank-mates might be fish of a similar size, region of origin, and temperament.  It, like most cichlids, is considered "aggressive" and will most likely eat smaller fish.  However, it can get along in a well-populated tank of at least 50 gallons with plenty of "territories" divided by plants or decorations and a hiding place of its own.

    Right now until June 12th, you can get an Electric Blue Jack Dempsey on sale at Uncle Bill's Pet Centers for only $19.99 - that's a savings of at least $16.00!

    DrTim's One & Only Live Nitrifying Bacteria!

    Trying to avoid New Tank Syndrome or wishing to control your tank's ammonia and nitrite levels?  DrTim's Aquatics has the all-in-one answer, the One & Only Live Nitrifying Bacteria!  Not only does One & Only eliminate new tank syndrome, but it also naturally and safely creates a bio filter, removing toxic ammonia and nitrite.  It is 100% natural, with no sulfur or offensive odors, and works immediately!

    In order to set up a successful aquarium environment for your fish and invertebrates, it is key to convert the fish waste to a non-toxic form.  DrTim's One & Only does this using nitrifying bacteria, and does it quickly!  Typically, naturally establishing a newly set-up aquarium with similar bacteria could take 30 to 45 days.  This also happens to be one of the most crucial periods for your fish when ammonia and nitrite increase in levels to the point of being toxic to your fish.  However, Dr. Timothy Hovanec has found through the latest scientific research that this particular nitrifying bacteria can expedite the process safely and naturally.  One & Only is different than other bacteria products, as the bacteria are grown on a substrate instead of free swimming, which means the bacteria stay active longer in the bottle and work faster once poured into the aquarium.  One & Only is a highly concentrated mixture of the right species of ammonia- and nitrite-oxidizing bacteria, and it is now used in public aquariums and by professionals around the world!

    Use One & Only when setting up a new tank, after a water change, cleaning your filter, when adding new fish and after a disease treatment to control ammonia and nitrite.  Just add it one time to keep ammonia and nitrate low - preferably 0 - during the cycling period, and it starts working immediately!

    You can add One & Only anytime once the tank is set-up and the water dechlorinated.  One & Only is completely non-toxic and will not harm fish, corals or invertebrates and so it can be added when fish and invertebrate are already in the tank. Just shake the bottle well and pour!
