I spotted this guy mixed in with the 'african cichlid' tank at petsmart. The coloration is beautiful and if he looks this great as a juvie (he's less than an inch now) I can't wait to see him as he matures. Any ideas what it is?

I got 2 of that same fish, same size a few days ago at petsmart. Very nice looking.
Females will retain the coloring.
Males turn blue, sort of like a socolofi's color.
