Bought this cichlid at my LFS. Not sure what species it is.

Well it's definitely an acara of some sort.
I would think it is probably an Aequidens species though not too sure. Some thing like Aequidens diadema, A. paticki, A. pallidus, A. metae, or A.sp. atabapo can all look pretty similar at young age. You may need to provide more pictures and/ or grow it out some more.
