Mayan. exCichlasoma urophthalmus. The number of bars is correct for a mayan; but incorrect for a festae. Has thicker bars --much more typical of a mayan. The y- bar comes all the way down to the gill area and does not attatch to the adjacent bar ---like a mayan, quite unlike that of a typical festae in which the y bar attatches to the previous bar around eye level.

I wouldn't be disapointed with a mayan. They are just as interesting of a species as a festae.
