Red Zebra but they will cross with the Labs.. No big deal if you don't intend on keeping them..

Since you have labs you could mix in a male peacock if your tank is big enough. How big is it?

I can't vouch for the compatability of these with labs (I know nothing of peacocks) but I can vouch for them having some red:
Aulonocara "German Red"
Aulonocara (Rubescens)
Aulonocara jacobfreibergi "Eureka"

how about super ruby red peacock they should go fine with the yellow labs. if your tank is 55g 48"x13"x21" then i say go for the super rudy red peacock.

Are the super ruby red hard to find
Not sure they even exist, never heard of the "super" before. The so called Red Peacocks are common but quality varies widely.

I currently have five Aulonocara jacobfreibergi "Eureka red" cichlids with four yellow labs. They seem to get along very well and the eureka reds are pretty cool looking.
