Body shape isn't right for Herichthys Carpintis. Some sort of peacock or hap but cant tell what kind with out any color.

Yeah sulfur heads are a hot looking fish. I have always wanted one I never knew what they looked like as juvies. Now I can be on the look out for one.

Keep in mind females maintain the juvenile coloring, so it is not a guarantee that it will end up with the bright blue and yellow, as that is a male only trait
