Looks like a bolivian ram. You can read about them here.

My friend says he thinks it's a geophagus or something. Any thoughts? I am having a hard time trying to figure out how to tell if it's a Bolivian ram or a geophagus. They look the same in the pics to me but my research is telling me that the geophagus gets much bigger do I would like to figure it out. Fingers crossed that it's a Bolivian ram.

I appreciate the help. I guess if he grows to 12 inches instead of 3 I'll know he's not a ram

Judging by the line through its eye and the dot on it, it's a ram. No doubt. It's just a little washed out.

It's a ram. Just super washed out of color. Keep up on your tank so that water quality doesn't slip, they get stressed out easily.
