    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.

    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.
