Looks like a Colbalt Blue Cichlid.
Probably a male.
It's a mbuna from Lake Malawi, Africa.

Aggressive and Territorial.

Lightbulb My thoughts

Here is what I think .. about your fish..
I have alot of socolofi's and they look like the first pic...
your pic looks more like the second pic.... which are COBALT BLUE's

Just thought I would say my 2 cents

i have to disagree, respectively......if you look at the first original posted pic, the fish has black in the fins with the exception of the dorsal.........i suspect the fish in the pic to be a female socolofi.......The cobalts that i have always seen lack any dark defined colors in its fins, such as your second pic of the cobalt blue..........Then again we are both looking at pics and not the fish itself...........

ok The fish in the first pic of this post is a male socolofi Just my opinion. He maybe lacking all the color due to Stress, lighting Ect, the pic of the cobalt blue fish is much shinnyer then his or her pic so that would leave me to still belev it is the socolofi.
