    That is not a jack demspey those are much darker, my best guess would be a jewel cichlid.

    Definitely a cichlid; be watchful, they tend toward the cannibalistic.

    Every carnivorous fish is a cannibal. Territorial might be a better word. Most cichlids have large territories, the best thing to do is keep one aggressive cichlid per small tank (or a lot, if you overwhelm the fish, no one can claim a territory). South American cichlids are supposed to be good parents, best of luck with the babies.
