Hi everybody,
I purchased this fish from my LFS a while back thinking it was a sulfur head peacock. It was ~2 inches long, light blue, and had a yellowish streak from the back of its skull to the base of the dorsal fin. After observing it for a while in with my male peacocks I realized it had a more slender or streamlined profile and I began to think it may be a fryeri hap. I also haven't ruled out that it could be a blue peacock. It certainly looks like a fryeri to me, but with so many species and hybrids out there I accept that I may never know for certain. I will add that most of the colored up varieties in the mixed hap/peacock tank at my LFS appear to be purebred varieties rather than hybrids, but who know what goes on in those mixed tanks. Thanks in advance!

PS. The first picture is of the same fish as in the second two pictures. He colors down within five minutes of the lights turning on almost without fail.
