What type of cichlid did I see?

I saw what I'm pretty certain were cichlids in a LFS the other day. I think they were young, as they were only about and inch and a half long. They were medium to dark brown with black spots. Any idea what these might have been?

10 gallon- 8 Harlequin Rasboras, 1 female betta.

20 gallonH - 1 Peacock Gudgeon, 2 Skunk Cories, 1 Sparkling Gourami. , one male betta, 2 nerite snails.

Wish I HAD gotten pictures. The clerk was busy with someone else, so I couldn't ask, and then forgot when I was leaving. I thought maybe you'd have an idea from their color.

Just looked up Jaguar cichlids, and the coloring is wrong (unless its quite a bit different in young fish). The jaguars look to be a lighter brown with black spots. These fish were a lot darker brown.

Looks like none of them would go well in a community tank anyway. I just thought they were neat looking, but suspected they'd get much larger. Thanks for going to all the trouble to look them all up, Fishyfish!
