I have 7 of these fish. I was told they are Jack Dempsey's, can anyone help identify them?

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.
