Looks like a Jack Dempsey or a Firemouth. I'm going to lean toward a Fire, but I'll be honest, some of the pics teased me and he/she looked like a Ram. XD

Def not a JD or Firemourh. It does have the flowering on the side like a Flowerhorn. It could be a hybrid.

I concur, not a Jack or a Meeki. Almost looks like a Sunfish.

Jaguar Cichlid?

Hi to all :)

Recently i bought 2 jaguar cichlids or at least that's what i told the salesman, and he gave me these 2 in the pics. 1 of them is a jaguar cichlid for sure, but the other one i have my doubts if it's a jaguar or not. Can some confirm pls? :)

1st pic is definitely a Jag. Can't tell on the 2nd pic. Doesn't look like a Jag but can you get a better pic?

As for the original poster Myrox the first pic makes me think it's a young Green Texas Cichlid..The other two pics are thrown off by the color of the substrate.
