Help With a Fish ID

Hi all,
I was wondering if any of you could help me identify my fish.
I am under the impression that they are Apistogramma viejita but they don't match any of the coloration I've seen online.

Thanks,
Logan

Maybe young 'gold' version? Looks like the sides of your fish might have some reddish at the edges of the scales.

Thanks for that! I called the store I got them from and they said they were Apistogramma Golden Red Face Macmasteri. But, when I google this I don't see any pictures similar to mine.
