The electric blues were bred for the color, but the females won't carry the blue gene. You have to breed the male back to a reg female jack, then when the fry gets old enough you breed one of those females back to the father.

There is a lot work to breeding the EBJD's and that is one of the reasons they are so expensive. I just happen to know a breeder and he gave me wholesalers price since I was ordering at a minimum of 18. On aquabid they usually go for 20 to 30 dollars, and if you buy from a wholesaler they will cost you 25 + for a 1 inch juvie.

The ones I have are from the "HOLLYWOOD" line.
I got them from a local breeder who paid $1000 for the parents!

They sell @ the store I work @ for $25 bucks

If they are selling for that in a store, you got off cheap. Everywhere else they are 40 to 50$ each.

Glad mine came from a private breeder, got them for 13.50 each wholesale.

This was taken the day that they came in, still washed out from the shipping and lighting not that good.
