I am not really an expert in African cichlids but it looks like a male Aulonacara to me. Commonly called a "Peacock" One of the red variants.

At least until someone with more experience pipes in.

Definitely a male peacock, but I've been out of the larger africans for some time so that's all the help I can give.
