Not sure on the striped one but the one in the middle of the pic looks liike some kind of Parachromis...maybe a Dovii or Loisellei. Or could be Managuensis. Can you get a clearer pic?

the one in the middle possibly a jaguar cichlid? and if so what is its proper name?

Jaguar cichlid is the common name for Parachromis Managuensis.

jeaninel 10-10-2010 07:48 PM

Maybe Tilapia Buttikoferi.
