That's a Copadichromis azureus, This cichlid is often sold under the name Haplochromis chrysonotus but should not be confused with Copadichromis chrysonotus, a distinctly different fish. Haplochromis chrysonotus is an older name for C. azureus.

he looks different now, but thought another pic might help. I'm afraid he might be stressed from bullying =( my never ending battle.. I also wonder about the black spot on his head, but my red jake has that too (a black strip on tail) coloring, I guess

Hard to tell, that fish is seriously stressed out. Did you just get it?

he's in a 75g with 4 peacocks and a yellow lab.. I've separated the bully, but am afraid that another fish has picked up where that one left off. I might try to get a better pic later. It's wc day and I'm going to rearrange let the bully out and hope for the best. I don't want to rehome any of them but am running out of ideas/options. I've rearranged, left lights off.. separated.. idk

I think a major problem is your have incompatible stock/number of fish in to small of a tank without enough territories to claim.
