Looks like diplogramma to me, The species looks almost identical to micropeltes at this age pattern wise, but the color on micropeltes would be much more red, the yellows and beige/browns are typical diplogramma

Nice. I picked up my 5 from Spencer Jack, how about you? They grow fairly fast and hit the pellets worse then cichla. Their temperament is mellow compared to Micros.

I wasn't sure at first if they were Diplos but now that they are morphing the same as the chart below I know for sure they are diplo!

Here is the chart for you to reference yours against as they grow.
Mine are between C and D at the moment.
