It needs to color up more. But I think we are in agreement it's some type of Psuedotropheus

They are similar, both are Psuedotropheus, but look at the dorsal fin, way different. I still think it's an elongatus.

One thing with Psuedotropheus, especially that purple color, is it can change often and sudden. I have a Hongi Island that has that same color purple, but also will turn white, and light blue.
