Unless you purchased the fish from somewhere like Jeff Rapps (or another very reputable breeder/supplier) as a pure fish of either species, it's almost guaranteed to be a mix of the two. Finding pure labiatus or citrinellum is extremely difficult. Yours, however, has more of a labiatus appearance.

It's most likely going to stay the colour it is now. They can change quite a bit when juveniles, but at 6" it has probably hit it's adult colour. There's always a chance though ;) If you feed it some colour-enhancing foods, like krill as a treat, you may be able to get a stronger orange.
