I am not sure of how common it is. I do know that I have yet to come across one in my neck of the woods....

I think Karls is absolutely right. Maybe wild rather than selectively bred color morph.
Definitely Apistogramma sp. and probably agassizzi. But he is definitely he eventhough pic isn't clear. Females are lot smaller and not even close to male's distinct colors and finnage. Oh, it has been quite long time since i bred South American Dwarf Cichlids. Definitely not a Krib.

I agree with cerianthus 100%. You've got a male Apistogramma agassizzi there. They aren't the rarest of fish but they're certainly not the most common things in the world, either. It should make a good community resident and will look absolutely great once it colors up a bit.
