Please identify this peacock

I have not yet learned a lot of the different cichlids. I know a handful and I know this is a peacock but I am not sure of the species. I got him for the same reason a lot of people get cichlids, he is pretty haha. I would appreciate some help on identification.

What a beautiful fish. I believe he is an Aulonocara Jacobfreibergi. I am going to add these to my tank soon.

Is there a common name or a shorter way of referring to them?

I was going to say an Aulonocara Jacobfreibergi Eureka which is line bred but it looks more like
an Aulonocara Jacobfreibergi Reginae except that the orange extends more into the fin and nose. I'd say it is probably a very nice line bred Eureka.

Aulonocara is the species. Jacobfreibergi is the sub species. You could call it a eureka peacock if it is a eureka(usually they get more red) or a Malawi butterfly peacock if it is the Reginae.(more orange.) look up this link
