ok i found this cichlid and it looks exactly like it and fits description Haplochromis sp. "#44" thickskin

juvi zebra obliquidens got me to this answer because i found a forum with an article saying a lot of stores/breeders/suppliers will give the name zebra obliquiden to any victorian with a lot of color but a common victorian but very colorful is Haplochromis sp. "#44" thickskin

anyone agree

Yup, but could be the 2 first i stated. You might have to wait till it grows to see its distinctive features!
