Trying to determine type of fish

Just trying to figure out what I have and what to do next. The "assorted cichlid sale" is my worst enemy and I now know my lesson. Please help me with this juvinile 2" guy. My apologies for the quality. It was hard to get a good photo of him staying still in my 100 gallon.

Google "Kenyi cichlids", that is what it looks like to me.

Trying to determine type of fish

"It's blue and has stripes, it must be a Kenyi!" SMH

The over all body, head and mouth structure does not resemble an mbuna in anyway. Also mbuna don't get the iridescent coloring on the head, that's normally a trait reserved to open water species such as haps and peacocks.

To me it looks like a young possibly male Copadichromis azureus. My reasoning is the fin shape, blue iridescent coloring on the head and the 3 black dots along the side.

both are Peacocks.

Yellow Benga and the blue one could be a variety of species or even a peacock hybrid.
