electric blue hap?

Is this an electric blue hap? I ask because it was a product of unauthorized breeding of some of my dragon bloods in my 75 gallon mixed tank. I have never heard of this being an offspring of dragon bloods. I'm not going to sell him, and he will live out his days in my tank. It's just weird to me.

It looks dark to be a fryeri, and they tend to have those darker black bars, I think it might be a Ahli,

Haha! They're fun. Mean to each other tho, I keep only males in a heavily stocked tank. I think ev1 in there has some kind of minor tail or dorsal damage from nipping and fighting

Yeah, they do beat each other up pretty bad from time to time. Thank you all for the feedback, I'm pretty sure this guy is a blue dragon then. I couldn't figure out what he was!
