is this close to your fish that you need id'd? i would say from what i can see in the picture that its a yellow tail acei.Finally reached 6 tanks... oh god, this addiction is getting serious. 75g mbuna tank, 65g gold severum, 55g OB peacock breeding colony, 30g(36x18) growout, 20 long Dwarf Alto's, 10g fry tank.
If I die young bury me in... An 8x2x2 with versa tops and a large sump for adequate filtration;)

I have found a few that may be ID'able as that fish. First off with the angular nose I would firstly assume it is not a Troph Based Peacock therefore went on that. Here is what I could find:
Aulonocara Roberti/Korneliae Blue Gold (Blue and Gold Peacock)
Aulonocara Koningsi (Regal Peacock)
and it is possible that it is still relatively young and not gotten its Yellow color yet (just guessing on that). So here are a few Adult based coloration patterns I believe it could be:
Aulonocara sp. "Lwanda" (Red Top Lwanda)
Aulonocara Sp. (Walteri )
Hope this helps. It definitely looks like it is from the Aulonocara Sp. But who knows, maybe I am completely wrong. But I do hope you find out for sure because I want one in my tank now75 Gallon Planted Tank!
