Bought the wrong type of fish?

Hello everyone,

I went to my local fish store to get a Male german blue ram. The owner went to get one from the backstore and i couldnt inspect the fish properly before buying it.

I doubt that its a german blue ram since he dosent have black spot. Could it be because he is stressed? He look like a bolivian ram. Here is a picture next to my gbr female.

Give him some time. Stressed fish are often more dull.

Definitely a GBR and not a Bolivian.
