Question German Blue Ram?

Can anybody please tell me what type of Ram do I have
I was told it is a GBR but when I'm looking at other members pictures and online GBR Fish Care websites it doesn't look like mine

Looks like what they call an 'angel ram'. It's specifically bred with a deformity to make it short and tall. It falls in the same category as balloon fish, unfortunately.
