Jack Dempsey Blue Color Variances

I've seen a varierty of blue colors in Jack Dempsey's. Is there a difference between a blue tinted JD vs an electric blue?

Yes, a "Blue Gene" is a cross between a normal one and a EBJD. An EB is if both the parents are EBs.

Blue gene jack dempseys are identical to regular jack dempseys in appearance, they just carry the recessive electric blue gene.
Typically EBJDs are mated to a blue gene JD to produce EB offspring. EBJDs are not normally mated together because they tend to produce extremely weak offspring.

So the process is mate an EBJD with a regular JD to create BGJDs, grow out BGJD and mate it with an EBJD (preferably not the father).


There is a gold jack dempsey variant, I don't know about a red one.
