Exclamation What African Cichlid is this?!

He is in a tank with a yellow lab and They seem to be doing great. He has named himself the alpha male and claimed most of the tank as his. He's not mean, just chases the yellow lab around when he gets too close, no biting though. This is the best picture i was able to get. Mobile Photobucket

Could be a Metriaclima pulpican, Metriaclima Blue Zebra or a young Pseudotropheus demasoni (Pombo Rocks)

Need a much bigger picture of the fish to be able to see it properly.

What do you mean bigger? Like more pixels or just a closer picture? Thanks for the suggestions (:

Need a larger picture of the fish showing its fins.

By the looks of things it is a Demansoni.
