I have one too, looks exactly like yours with the same colour shade, eggspot and head shape. It was sold as a baby as "electric blue cichlid" and while I knew that wasn't quite accurate, I never did find another fish it really matched. It sort of looks like the powder blue pics I see when I search, but his/her head shape seems different to me and mine doesn't have the black band across the top, although I read that some don't. So I just call it a him and call him a "blue cichlid" lol
Mine can be pretty aggressive, but he's also been raised in his tank with his tankmates all from day one, so they all keep each other in line pretty well. I keep him with 4 Blood Parrots and 2 Jewels.
Here is a picture of mine from when I first got him. He's bigger now.
