Please help me confirm the identity of this fish.

I know what it's supposed to be.

The LFS sent me this short granny video, and it's obviously a juvenile.

But is it what I ordered?

Please ID this fish!!

Was that a typo?

What species do you think it is? The video isn't particularly
helpful.

The video in the bag makes it look really warped, my first guess is a ram but it could be another ciclid for sure. I am not the best at identifying juveniles but this was my first guess based on the video provided.

OK.

Sorry it looks nothing like a Ram to me.

It's supposed to be an Electric Blue Acara.

I think it probably is, although it's body is a little narrow.

Hoping it's not a Green Terror.

It's a Blue Acara. I've had both. Similar to the new eye but not next to each other.

My first thought was electric blue acara. His snout is too big to be a ram. He just needs to relax and color up in your tank.

Definitely looks like a cichlid. Not sure if it is a blue ram though. Might just be a yellow
