I.D. on this peacock

Hi all, just curious if anyone can id this peacock cichlid. I've owned him for over a year, currently he is around 3.5 inches. He was sold to me by a breeder at a LFS, the guy bred a few strains of cichlids that he said were high quality purebred fish but he has this practice of breeding them and placing all the juvies of similar size in sale tanks in the store together. There were several different species of cichlids in the display tank but he said he could differentiate them. This was sold to me as Aulonocara jacobfreibergi, but I am unsure as he seems a little too heavy bodied and the finnage doesn't quite match, specifically the rear of the dorsal.

Its no big deal, I'm just curious (not breeding or anything). So post your thoughts, hazard a guess, inform me if there's no way of knowing, all posts are welcomed. Sorry for the lengthy intro.

Thanks a lot mike. He is my favorite fish I've ever owned based solely on personality. He is the one of the most social and intelligent fish I have seen. He is so entertaining to watch. He moves mountains too, I think my Oscar aquascaped less than this guy.

Beautiful fish. Love the blue. Dave's Rare Aquarium Fish-Price List might have an answer.

Poseidon thanks you all. He really is an awesome fish. My cell camera isn't great but my wife got a few good shots with her phone. Her camera does his blue more justice but it kinda washes out the red.

I love the blue! Possibly because it's my favorite color but still I love it.

Looks like an Aulonocara Hansbaenschi Red Shoulder to me.

Nice fish!
