Hello group,
 
It has been awhile! Hope all is going well in fishforums.
 
I was hoping to see if anyone could classify this cichlid. I believe this is a type of a Earth-eater possibly redhead? I have searched all over the net to find a picture similar to this feller here but had no such luck. He seems to fit in well except s/he going after my electric blue acara. Any help is greatly appreciated!

It looks a bit like a juvi redhead cichlid not 100% but if so they grow up to 14 inches!

Oy... Deep inside I am saying you're wrong and its only because I know I can't keep this guy in a 75gal... S/he will grow to be a beautiful fish though so its tempting! Sad part of it is? The LFS has this one labeled as a a Eartheater! Ugh...
