Well I have two Jack Dempseys. I purchased them at the same time. Now a month and a half layer one of them is bigger and super aggressive, the other is not much bigger from when I purchased. I can't tell what sex they are. Plus the bigger one is always chasing the little one being a bully, thrn other times they huddle together. So confused need help. I do have a video of the two in action

There's not enough territory for them. I think the rule is 1 JD for 75. Sorry to be the barer of bad news. You could always try rehoming them. I know EBJD stay smaller and have better colors IMO

He is right. The bigger one is dominant and bullying the other one. The smaller one may not make it if not moved asap
