It's hard to make out in those pictures because they are a little fuzzy and sideways but it does resemble some of the Protomelas species or one of the larger species of Aulonocara.

You're welcome, I'd lean more towards and Aulonocara. Check out:

You're right that is him. Do you know what he is? When we went to the breeder told him we already had a blue one. He said the chyrysononus (sp?) hap we purchased is different fish and told us ours is more common. He knew the colors it would have but didnt know what it was..

I was told he is a "red fin nyassae".
