Help id this cichlid please

Bought him at petco, so I know it being a hybrid is likely. Any suggestions would be great!

Melanochromis exasperatus. Looks like a female too. They will usually have orange coloring.

Thanks! I was wondering how she would do in a mostly male tank... which is what I'm going for. Think she should be taken out?

You might see some extra aggression from the males, but is still say add her in and give it a shot.
