ID please

Okay, so I went on a mission today to find any kind of Ram I could find locally and ended up with a free fish from a dealer who claimed this was a Gold ram. He'd been in with tiger oscars when the customer traded him in to the store and as a result his fins are pretty bad and he seemed stressed. Someone else said he didn't look like a German or a Gold Ram at all, so does anyone have any clues? Or is he one, after all? Pardon the bad picture. Camera phone sucks.

Looks like possibly a GBR, but with the stress I'm not sure. That poor guy needs some clean water and good food. Nice save. Good luck with him!

Thanks for the responses! He's swimming around my QT this morning looking significantly better already. Hope he pulls through, I've kind of fell in love with the little guy.
