I want a RED African?

I have been searching, and trying for a while, and I'm thinking I'm just going to order one online. I've gotten German Reds, that where more orange, Super ruby reds that came out looking like Red Shoulders. I just want a deep deep all, or mostly RED peacock/hap/Mbuna whatever.

What should I be looking for that is going to be as red as possible?

Strawberry peacock maybe but I have seen orange ones too. I think a lot of it is just luck I've got a few I'm hoping will show some good red,crystal ruby red, German red, and an eureka, the ruby is turning a red orange my eureka lost his red when I put him in my main tank and my German red is still coloring up but he has potential. So I'm kind of in the same boat.

Oh ya. See that's what I keep getting. Lots of Blue with a little red. I want like ALL red, with little to no blue. Like I've seen Ruby reds which are all a deep red, and just have a blue face, but any one I have gotten is either more orangey or has just the red shoulder, and the rest is blue.

Ya that's not bad, I have a juvenile strawberry right now. What I really want is this one. But every fish I have gotten just falls short, so I was hoping there's a reputable online store that will sell an adult, or at least one that is already colored.
