Red Peacock vs. Chisawasawa

Are they the same fish? I've been searching for a Chisawasawa ( as seen here Fish Profile for Chisawasawa (Tramitichromis intermedius, Lethrinops intermedia, Trematocranus intermedius) ), but I've also read that it's also known as a Red Peacock. However, every peacock I've seen looks nothing like this.

That appears to be a hap, which is why it looks a little different then other peacocks. Common names are often misleading. I can think of about a dozen fish off hand that the name Red Peacock could apply to.
