It could be a hybrid, don't get me wrong; but I am always cautious about making that determination. IME, most fish from mixed cichlid tanks can be IDed with a bit of effort, and before declaring "hybrid" it's best to exhaust all possibilities, IMO. The fish shipped in mixed batches are a combination of sports that couldn't be identified from shipments of wild fish or of which there weren't enough of to sell as a batch, left over captive-bred fish the wholesaler no longer has enough of too fill specific orders, and oddball captive-bred fish that came in with orders of known fish (hybrid or pure-bred contaminants).
