what kind of fish is this? w/pics!

by vwfan79

Can anyone help me identify this fish, I've been looking around and the closes I can find is a Red Tail Cichlid. Don't know if it's some sort of hybrid or what.


The other question I have is about my Auratus and his/her color. I read that if there are no males in the tank a female will make herself look like a male. Wondering if anyone can tell me if that is whats going on or if it is something else.


Thanks for all the help.

The blue fish in the first pic is a poorly bred or hybrid Pseudotropheus Socofoli, if it's a hybrid I cant tell what the other parent would be. And sorry, I dont know anything about Auratus except that they're really aggressive.
