My guess is a vieja species or vieja hybrid, as it appears to have coloring similar to a red headed cichlid (vieja synspillium) but obviously lacks the red head. It is massively deformed, which occurs either in hybridization, rare genetic traits, or poor water quality during the breeding/hatching/raising. I'm sure HUKIT or 5x5 will be able to be more specific, but that's my guess

He got beat up by red belly pacu that buy the way moved to a 1500 gallon tank. He just got picked up. I,m happy about that. I had this cichlid yesterday with the tank. . Just was wondering what cichlid it was. This guy had bad water quality.

It's a jack dempsey cross breed with a flowerhorn. And has the collar off a jack dempsey. The guy had 2 jack dempsey and flower horn in that tank with a red devil. So I looked it up and it comes close to it.
