No but if from a LFS I would suspect Sciaenochromis fryeri x Aulonocara jacobfreibergi which have become all too common here in the UK. :(

Doesn't look like an aulonocara head to me, too elongated. That hump in front of the eyes makes it look like something else.

When I bought the fish 2 years ago it was label as a malawi cichlid. I remember that other females in the tank was more of a silver color and the male had blue on him. I can't recall if the male look closer to Sciaenochromis fryeri or Aulonocara jacobfreibergi. This fish doesn't eat plant and is very peaceful. It's holding right now and it has been doing it for the last couple of weeks. There's no males in the tank so of course no fry. I saw it does the circle dance thing on its own once.

Unfortunately there is probably 100% chance that you can't ID this girl now.

she definitely is high percentage if not 100% peacock IMO- but except for a couple of species of female peacocks they all look so similar.
