    def not a Jack Dempsey. I think you may be correct about it being a texas cichlid Herichthys, cyanoguttatus. at least that is what it looks like to me but I am by far not an expert on new world cichlids.

    Iooks like a texan, but also like Jack.
    The nose lip area looks more like a texas chiclid. Their mouths line up where as the jack dempsey seem to have a longer lower jaw, if I am not mistaken.

    Thanks guys. I'm still thinking it's a texas cichlid. It is still really young and only about an inch long so it will be more obvious when he gets bigger
