Need help identifying


...and over the edge.

Not an expert by far but they look closer to green terrors to me...pretty young looking, you may need to wait for some growth.

That's what I was thinking- possibly green terror. Poor buggers are pretty pale and beat up. Give them a week or two in a healthy tank and they'll color up so you can identify them easier.

Im not a south American expertg, but Im almost certain that's what they call a "Jeweled cichlid or "Jeweled Texas cichlid" google that species they come in different color variations but Im sure you'll see some identical to that one

Thank you. I did check out the jeweled cichlids and they do resemble them. They usually stay this color all day but sometimes at night they get red faced.
