I bought this fish at a fish store a few months back and I'm wondering if its a Jack, because at the store they named it as an "american chichlid"

Yeah, looks like a Jack to me. What size tank is that and what are the other fish in the tank w/ him/her?

Its only a 29 gallon, be fine for now but hopefully will upgrade this summer when I'm able to work, and not in college. The other fish are: gold gourami, 2 tinfoil barbs, and a algae eater. I know the barbs grow to be huge so they'll need a bigger home this summer.

Yes that looks like a Dempsey alright. On several occasions I've seen Dempseys being sold as 'African Cichlids' together with Mbunas, I wonder why they make this stupid mistake with this particular species and not with other New World Cichlids.
