Looks like an Albino Flowerhorn.

Many cichlids move rocks/sand as a hobby. The most notorious in my tank is my Albino Socolofi aka Snow White. He has dug out the sand around a rock and made his own little hole to hang out in. I see him working on it everyday, hell charge up the hill scooping sand, and spitting it out, then repeat. While I was typing this I caught him doing it, but he stopped when he saw me. http://youtu.be/PwCiYJMDLvM

Looks like a male Red Devil to me. And my female ALWAYS moved rocks when she wasn't attacking me for putting them back. She drew blood on a number of occasions as they are very territorial.
