Maybe, maybe not. Dragon Blood usually end up with a lot of hot pink colour than orange.The term Dragon Blood is a vague term applied to types of hybrids. They are variable, since they are hybrids.

Yours is attractive. Makes me think of a yellow-orange Aulonocara mixed with a Protomelas.

It doesn't look like any Dragon Blood I have ever seen. It appears to be a hybrid Red Peacock/Hap mix as mentioned in the previous post. It could be a full Aulonocara hybrid. The pure Rubescens and German Red Peacocks are darker and more red than this specimen. No matter what it is It's a pretty fish.

Dragon Blood is a hybrid itself and is variable. Some are more red...I think that is what breeders shoot for is the red. Some are more of a brilliant pink.
