Definitely not a Caquetaia sp. "green umbrifera". The fish displays the classic honeycomb pattern of a beani. Green Umbies are super rare in the hobby. They also have a different mouth structure and a pattern and generally show a lateral stripe.

The beani can grow to 10-12 inches with the females of course being smaller. Yes they are nasty to each other but they seem to get very stressed when housed with other aggressive species so I'd leave the tank divided and a species tank.

I have a confession. I'm a cichlaholic.

Chef-

Agree with Sam, No way that's a Grammode. A larger pic would be mucho helpful.
