Cichlid ID help again please

So it seems my local pet store gets cichlids mixed up. This one:Click image for larger version

Was sold to me as a Taiwan reef cichlid but based on my googling it is not a Taiwan reef but to me it looks like a female peacock. (The other fish in the tank the same size of this one have started to get their color)

Do anyone else think it is a peacock?

I have two OB peacocks and this one looks similar to them except for the colour. And I do have one now that actually looks like a Taiwan reef in the google Images.Click image for larger version

I can't determine from the pic if your fish is truly a Tiawan Reef. Here is a pic of my juvenile Tiawan Reef to compare to.

That looks like a juvenile Aulonocara Peacock. Too young to determine gender.

Ok thank you. The reason I think itís a female is because my two OB peacocks are a little smaller than this one and they are already getting their color while this one is still brown

OB's color up quick due to their hybrid ancestory. Don't give up hope. I've had my share of late bloomers.
