Not a green terror, looks more like a Jack Dempsey to me.
I’ve had someone say the same thing. The guy working there seriously needs a new job o_O this is the third fish he has steered me wrong with. Lol well this fish is with my Oscar in a 75 gallon together (just them two) and they don’t have any issue with each other at all. So I’m assuming they are okay? Lol

It is a Flowerhorn, or a low grade Red Texas. My guess is the latter. Absolutely not a GT or a JD.
The latter? What is that? I like how he looks though maybe time will bring out his looks more

Part of me thinks it’s a flowerhorn as well. It’s not the big monster head you see but it’s not a green terror or a JD.

Jeez, I’m so confused. I’m pretty confident in the fact that the guy at earl may knows nothing at all and is selling random fish to people .

"The latter" means the second name I gave you, which was a form of Red Texas. These are another hybrid, like the Flowerhorns, except it is primarily based off a Herichthys x Amphilophus labiatus/citrinellus cross. The red doesn't always develop, but the resulting fish can still be somewhat colorful. However, the markings and head shape make me wonder if it isn't just an odd hybrid of something else altogether.

This is a young fish, and it is very difficult to predict what any of these hybrids will turn into.
