I need identification..

I purchased this fish from a catch-all cichlid tank. It was labeled as an "assorted African cichlid." I was just wondering if I could get some help figuring out what it is, and maybe any information I can get on it.
Thanks,
Josh
Sorry about the bad quality...

I thought peacocks were usually pretty dark? I'm new to cichlids though...
