Fish sold as Bolivian Ram - Is it?

This fish was sold to me as a bolivian ram... and it kind of looks like one, but the coloring is not the same, and the tail shape looks different to me, rounded out instead of curving in. I've seen it doing the earth eating behavior for which rams are named, but it's so dull. A sort of brownish color with yellowish edging on the fins, not red. So is it a dull bolivian, or is it something else?

That is not a "common" Bolivian ram.. not very close... sorry, I don't know what it is-- thinking Green terror juvy, but not the soft water ram you thought.

Oh dear. Well. That's not even remotely the same fish. In size or temperament. Guess I'll be taking it back to the store approximately immediately. Thank you both.
