It is a Victorian Paralabidochromis Red Fin Piebald. I have the Paralabidochromis Chromogynos Piebald.

Here is a link. Make sure you look at all the pictures. With Piebald's some are darker some are lighter.

He may turn redder. The blotches aka piebald will not change. The species Paralabidochromis Chromogynos Piebald may be the one you want.

You should not mix these Victorians as they will interbred.
