I bought this medium assorted cichlid at Petco. I thought it was a kenyi, but looks quite different. I tried my best taking pictures, but I think these will do. I cropped the pictures.

However sold you this fish as a Kenyi is an idiot, not meant for offense, but that's not a Kenyi cichlid lol. Definitely a Zebra cichlid, so I agree with you it looks more like a Cobalt blue cichlid.(n)(n)(n)(n)(n)(n)(n)(n)(n)

Weird Zebra type, probably hybrid, never saw one with blue fins while still having a dull body.
i agree! he is not doing well all the other cichlids bullied him, especially the red zebra, so i isolated him. I found it odd, but more surprising because the red zebra is not the dominant in the tank, but wouldnt leave him alone. The others bullied him but settled down, except the red zebra.

It would not be unexpected for a Metriaclima to bully a Metriaclima. Avoid that species if you add fish to the tank in the future.
