it's not a zebra, I would say something in the geophagus family judging from the face. Perhaps Geophagus pellegrini or a bolivian ram

This is a zebra, they also come in blue. Your guy looks nothing like it

The shape of the fish certainly suggests a ram.

He's maybe 2" in length but very young, hardly got any colour just a bright blue tinge. I only got him yesterday and I've went and forgotten what he is, der!
I enquired at the time about a ram but they didn't have any in, my lfs is pretty clued up, I trust what they say as they are hobbiests of many years.
