African cichlid I.D

I ordered some fish online and received them today, this little guy was supposed to be a Placidochromis Sp. Mbamba Bay, but he doesnt look like one to me! He's the purplely/blue one.Any ideas what he might be? He's about 4.5cm long. Sorry for the crappy photos
Thanks :)

It is a Labidochromis sp. Hongi.

100% not a placidochromis, the tail color and fin shape are totally wrong.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

This little guy is feisty! He's not shy and has already claimed a cave. He better not cause too much trouble the little stowaway!
