Looks like Protomelas "Tangerine Tiger" from Likoma Island except the face seems too long.

Any history on where you got, seems her so far.

Does anyone else have an idea? Could it be a hybrid?

No clue. I would ask for a refund and return the fish and never deal with that person again because they obviously aren't anything close to being an Acei.

Doubt you could get a better ID than from Noki. You should have a better idea once the fish matures.

Yeah, most of the fish I got from him don't match up.
