Balloon Rams

Hi, I know balloon species are a hot topic for debate sometimes but I just wondered if this is a German Blue balloon? (I assumed she was until someone thought otherwise) She has been in my tank (community) for about 4 months, seems to be the boss but not obviously aggressive. My cherry barb males can be a bit feisty at times but seem to know to keep away from her.
The colour and quality in the pic aren't great (on my phone) but I just wondered what people thought of her Thanks.Click image for larger version

Thanks....I think. Will pass on feeding her to bird She was a rescue and so will let her live out her life in comfort. I think she is attractive and always active and out front looking for food.
