Can someone please I.D this fish

I went to a pets at home today to buy some dog food and this fish had been brought to the shop as his owner was moving house, I was chatting to the member of staff who asked if I would re home him, they couldn't sell him because they don't know what he is. He seems settled and very chilled out, if he gets a bit chopsy with the other fish I will take him back. Any information would be greatly appreciated, thank you

Yeah he's definitely a cichlid, the picture isn't great. He's a gorgeous pink colour with dark red on his dorsal fin and tail edges. Thanks

I know, the light isn't great. It doesn't do him justice

Maybe a fire fish peacock. Female. Or it could be a unknown hybrid mix. Here is a firefish peacock. Click image for larger version

It is quite similar, maybe one of those mixed with something else, thank you for your help. I'll keep you updated on how he gets on

It's body shape and fin pattern do not match peacocks or Mbuna. I don't even think it's African. I can't remember the species, but there is a Cichlid with that exact shape, it gets quite large. Like 10 inches.
