My lfs said it was a drop off and were told it is Frontosa peacock hybrid
Is that a possibility or is it just a plain peacock

Definitely not a frontosa/peacock, looks like an everyday mbuna mutt. Remember any mouthbrooder can breed with another which makes buying mbuna tricky, lots of hybrids out there.
