Hemichromis ID help

I'm thinking either H. Stellifer or H. Guttatus hoping its the former of the two. It's about two in. long. Any input would be much appreciated.

It 2 in long so I can't be more than a couple of months. I bought it from a LFS called the fish bowl it was sold as a "jewel cichlid" but I was intrigued by the more orange color and and pointed snout. It was only $6 and took a shot in the dark that it could be a H. Stellifer but its more likely a guttatus.

People if you read the thread name and first post I know it is some sort of Hemichromide, which encompases all the "jewel cichlid" species, I believe there's 10. are 3 species that are sold as "red jewels" H. Bimaculatus, H.Guttatus, and H.Stellifer. IMO I thought it looked like a H.Stellifer or H.guttatus which look similar but it's to small to really be sure. Thanks for the help though.
