All cichlids are the same Family (Cichlidae)... it does look like the borleyi I typically see in stores, especially when young.

Many species have fish that are slightly different, at different collection points. The OP's fish is one from Kadango, yours is not. I'm not even certain you really have a borleyi, but perhaps a Copadichromis trimaculatus, often sold as the "Eastern Borleyi".
