Cichlid Identification

So I work at a petstore and this guy came in with the assorted Africans as extra fry. I took him home to identify him and I just cannot figure it out. Is he an Acei mutt? I don't know. If you guys can help I would be so grateful. He is about an inch and a half long so I'm assuming he's showing all the colouring he has at the moment. (:

Tough to say, it has eye color and some color on the dorsal fin, so it is a pearl colored cichlid rather than an albino, but that is about as far as I can go right now.

Well thank you for the clarification on colouring, at least! I get that cichlid identification can be tough. This is the last place I can think of to ask. My coworker believes it to be an Acei mutt and it could be for all I know, I just wanted to ask. Anyway thank you again, Wy Renegade!
