I turned the picture round to make it easier to view as it was upside down.

I would agree that it doesnt look like a Red Empress, juveniles usually have a black broken horizontal line running along the length of their body from eye to tail fin.

I am having a hard time working out what it is.

The reason I think it's male is because in the tank it was in at the store it had its own little territory & was chasing the other fish out of it, fins flared. Not sure how I managed to post the picture upside down but thanks for fixing Taz! I'll try to take some pics at different angles

My initial thought was that it was a young Aulonocara baenschi. but the more I look at the Dorsal fin, the more I am stumped.

It could also be a Pundamilia nyererei although I would expect more Orange showing in the anal fin at that size if it was.

It is possible.

I agree, keep an eye on it and wait a bit to see if it develops any more color.
