Can you help ID this species?

I purchased these at the LFS as crimson tide. As you can see it is not a crimson tide and I am reminded why I don't buy Victorians at the LFS. :cry:

I think it might be a type of Paralabidichromis, but I could be way off. Any help you could provide would be very much appreciated.

Pam, thanks for such a great web site!
So many species. So little space for additional tanks.

Hi Riftlake,

Dang, it won't let me in to see the picture. See if you can post the pic here:

Under the victorian section. The guys moderating really know what is going around out there, and I am sure they will be able to tell you.

Sadly there are many vic's going around that are the same, but have a variety of man made names!
