Is this a dragon blood peacock?

I bought this fish thinking it was a dragon blood. Im pretty confident it is and I am extremely happy with the coloration it has developed. Anywho I thought I would get some more experienced people to help ID this bad boy! Thanks

Looks like it could be a dragon blood. I've never seen any dragon blood with that much color though. I've only seen them as babies at my lfs.

Looks like it. Dragons blood is a line bred/hybrid Aulonacara strain and they don't all look exactly the same.

They are usually more red than orange but I am assuming that is the picture/lighting.

This is my crystal red peacock. Which I was looking for a dragons blood but 60 bucks for 1 mature fish, (I buy a lot of unsexed so full blown retail is a shocker sometimes lol) I went with cheaper and equally as beautiful guy who was only 20. You do look like you might have a dB but it's hard to tell with as many species are out there
