Definitely not Kenyi, or caeruleus. It looks like I light colored dragon blood, or strawberry Cichlid. I'm not sure exactly what it is though.

I don't think it looks anything like a strawberry cichlid or a dragon blood, to me anyway. Do you know the approximate age of this fish? I don't think it has egg spots, from what I can tell?

It's definitely not those fish, I was just stating some things that are semi similar, I have often found my fish by starting with googling similar ones, but looking at again, it's definitely not Aulonocara, my bad.

It's similar to a Kenyi I guess, but if it's a Kenyi it will have egg spots, and they have vertical bars as well. But that small it would still be blue as well.

Why must there be so many different kinds of cichlids? lol

Just looks like a red zebra to me. It's orange color is very faint though so it could even be a red zebra x yellow lab hybrid.

My instinct says hybrid, and I agree with red zebra/yellow lab mix. Where did you acquire this fish?
