Yes, looking more like a Fusco or Nimbochromis-ish. Certainly not a Red Empress, too predatory of mouth. What kind of markings did he have? Might be a hybrid, you just need to eliminate the possibilities.

Body was like a livingstonii but with a bold line running down lateral and head was a greenish blue, not sure if you can see from pic but also has a silver/ white blaze on top . Hope that helps 🤷‍♂️

Probably hybrid. Mix of characteristics, Fusco shouldn't have any white blaze like a Fryeri. Was sold under a meaningless name, so not a good sign. See how well he colors up.
