What type of cichlid is this?

This was my very first Cichlid, ever. I have had him for a couple of weeks, maybe a month or two.

Okay, I will try. I thought he was a mixed breed as well. But he is gaining more black than every. He was solid yellow. He just gained the black in two weeks. He was in a smaller tank, but I upgrade. That was when he really started to gain some color.


Edit: Added Some more Pics. Sorry, one is kinda blurry.
