I wish that this was posted yesterday morning!! I was at the LFS and saw the same kind of fish. It was beautiful.

All I can say is that it's African, but I can't remember the rest. I do remember how the face was a beautiful bluish-purple irridescent.

Its definitely a peacock. Possibly Aulonocara stuartgranti? Not sure which morph though. Maybe the cichlid experts can give a more accurate ID.

Do you have a clear side shot? It looks simliar to two fish that we have. One has a brown bar stiping on the side and the other does not.

It looks to be either Aulonocara stuartgranti or A. jacobfreibergi; too many color variants of each to be able to tell for sure.
