Identification?

I bought this fish two days ago it was a beautiful fish with ice blue stripes and long pelvic fins. It ran the tank it was in. When it was taken out and put in the bag it turned almost solid black or very dark blue. I expected this but usually when I put them in my tank their colors come back. This fishes colors still haven't come back and my water conditions are a ok. I am having trouble figuring out what it is without its normal colors. I can see a little bit of its bright blue when I use the flash but I still can't figure it out. Someone help please! Btw the convict you see in the picture is in the same tank because I'm not placing it in my tank with other Africans until I figure out what it is.

Looks kind of like a blue ahli(?) not sure on spelling, sorry. It may not be right, but it's an African cichlid
