    Not positive, but it looks like a Jaguar cichlid, Parachromis managuensis to me.

    im pretty positive thats what it is. the reasons for my id: it Looks like it....thats the most common fish that looks like that...there are only a few that are similar, and if the owner doesnt know the name, then its most likely something easily picked up, not a specialty ordered fish, so more reason to suspect its a common option...the jaguar.......but its smaller than you would expect to have spawned....they get 16"

    Thank you all. The pair aggressively defends their brood. The tank has some plecos, and they even pester the big ones (over 16"). The plecos eventually move along.

    How big are the parents? Jags make a great team when it comes to protecting their fry, if there are target fish in the tank.

    I would guess about 5" and 6". They are doing a fine job keeping their tank mates away.
