Hi all, thanks Gibbs for posting that pic. When i got the fish it was mostly black with some vivid blue markings. A couple days later it is solid light blue with dark lines on its fins like a socolofi. I think most likely it is a demasoni or saulosi. Thanks all for your input!!

Well, this fish is now yellow! but it's physical appearance is becoming slightly more mature and beginning to look like what i assume a sub-adult of whatever species it is. I'l put a pic up when i can get away from work for any length of time.

Could be a Metriaclima Sp. Msobo, or if not, maybe a Melanochromis johanni

These species have juveniles and females that are yellow-orange, males turn black and vivid blue. Yours sounds like a male losing his color because he not longer is dominant in the new tank

I would say its a hybridized fish. MY guess on the parents is an acei due to the yellowish fins and a socolofi.
