Can anyone help me identify my new fish?

So I recently went by petsmart to pick up a new t5 light set up. While I was there I saw this guy labled as a an assorted cichlid. However, he looks a lot like a flowerhorn. My large dempsey has adopted him apartently and even brings him crickets. Kind of weird...running a 180 gallon with a jebo 838, uv filter, power head, 2x300 watt heaters and 2 aquatop ifs30 internal filters, couple bubble bars as well.

Thanks! I thought his patterns looked like a FH and eventually he is going to get his own set up... Glad I grabbed him.

I thought it might be a jewel as well but the markings match a lot of young FH I have been able to find. He also doesn't have the two spots a lot of them have...

Okay so now maybe you fine folks can help me with this. My local petco has an adoption tank...basically you can leave a fish there and they are free to take. I got what I thought was dempsey...He has taken a liking to my new FH but his colors have changed. He was in the adoption tank but now I want to know if he is a dempsey...sorry for the bad pics. He has gotten more red on his stomach, less blue and lighter all around.

Not sure what kind it is but it's definitely not a JD. Looks nothing like one.
