Although it is possibe to a hybid, a cross between two different species within same Genus, but more likely Ps lombardoi or more commonly used these day as Ps kenyi./
Demasoni's darker blue stripes are more pronounced and usually goes all the way around but most distinctively your fish lacks dark navy blue marking/patterns on the cheeks.
If my guess is right and if your fish is mature fish, it seems like she maybe ready to spawn soon when there are males avail.. YOu may not able to observe spawning activities, but should be able to tell when she is brooding a clutch in her buccal cavity(mouth).
Look for dummy egg spots (few) on the anal fin of male although I have had older females with one dummy egg spot on the anal fin.
