That looks very like a pseudotropheus socolofi.
It might not be, but it could be something similar.

Nicely found, looks like a nice fish (for a cichlid, I'm not a cichlid man ;) ).

looks like a juvi, so will colour up :)

make sure your water stats are right for them! Bog wood will do the opposite to what you want.
