What is this blue fish?

My LPS has had these guys for about two months, apparently a local guy has turned em from salt water to freshwater? They are absolutely beautiful, and change colors as you watch them..
Ive already bought them..>.<
It was a black friday deal!!
Some guy came in and bought like thirty of them, and these guys were the last two, so i snagged em.
But I have no idea what their even called!
My guy at the lps said they were converted locally, so they are already used to our soft water.

Anyone know?

Those are what is being called "Electric Blue Ram" which is apparently related to the common Blue Ram, Mikrogeophagus ramirezi. How this unusually bright blue was achieved is a matter of some discussion; many feel such bright metallic colouration cannot be achieved through selective breeding, which opens up the door of disreputable practices. I've no idea.
