Sorry, FishAddict74. I've been busy of late. I can't place it specifically with any Aulonocara species The big thing throwing me off is the yellow edging on the dorsal and anal fins. I'm guessing it's either an uncommon species/variety of peacock, most likely of the A. stuartgrantii group, or an Otopharynx/Aulonocara hybrid.

No worries man, I’ve been busy too, it’s kinda nice getting back to the rat race lol
My friend that gave it to me gets his fish from a wholesaler that just sells them as assorted. I’d imagine that your second guess of hybrid is probably right. If it helps, it’s pretty big, about 6.5-7”

6.5"-7.0" is big for a peacock. If I'm remembering right, only A. jacobfriebergi and A. rostratus usually get that big. I'm gonna look at a couple of other books. I may have been thinking this out all wrong. I'm still kinda leaning toward a hybrid, and at that size, probably with an extreme expression of hybrid vigor.
