Then I shall show you a blue acara juvie that looks like a GT juvie
I never said they looked identical, but they do look very similar. At a size of 3" or under, a lot of people can't tell a blue acara from a GT.
And Green Terrors like these guys are actually "false green terrors", which are 'Aequidens' sp. "Goldsaum". There is another false terror called a white or silversaum, and another false terror that is a 'Aequidens' rivulatus.
Cichlasoma octofasciatum as Blue mentioned is actually a completely different species - the very common Jack Dempsey cichlid, which is indeed a central american fish. GT's are south american.
Hope that helps a little ;)
