help identifying african cichlid
today we got this guy from petsmart. he was labeled "assorted african cichlid" max 4"

if anyone knows what he is please let me know.. thanks!!!!!
he has a light purple/blueish color with darker stripes that sometimes fade
note: the aqua blue eyes and the 2 blue stripes across his face

any suggestions as to what he could be are welcome!

its hard to tell if the fish is a juvenile or an adult, but to me it looks like it could be a male kenyii morphing into his adult colors............Does it look like its changing colors?
