I'm not sure these fish are what the Ifs said they are.

I was told the first one is a Gymno Geophagus Braziliensis, and the second one a Cichlosoma Multisplinosa.Click image for larger version

How small is the fish on the right? It really doesn't look like Archocentrus multispinosus to me. It almost looks an Aequidens Pulcher at a glance. I would want to better understand size though.

Has the right fish coloration changed as it has settled in?

Can you get a side pick of the fish on the left?

1st one looks correct Second looks like a blue acara but something is not right. May be the lighting.

They just look very juvenile, especially the one on the right.

Geophagus (no gymno) braziliensis (pearl earth eater) and aequidens puncher (blue acara). Just a heads up, braziliensis get quite large and are pretty aggressive. Very different from the surinamensis-type geophagus like altifrons, abalios, pindare, etc

The fish on the right is about 2 1/2" the other is only about 1 1/2"

Yeah, I agree with the others, it is probably a blue acara.
