Herichthys sp. 'poza rica' (Turquoise)?

Hi,

I've been looking after this large Herichthys sp. 'poza rica' , I'm presuming these are what are sold in the trade as sp. 'turquoise' correct? It is quite an old fish, but the blue colouration on the fish is still beautiful and certainly lives up to it's trade name.

I have also added a female fish. This fish was also shipped under the name Herichthys sp. 'turquiose', however i'm a little curious.

These fish appear quite similar to deppii, which i'm very familiar with.

Here is photos of both fish for comparison. deppii top and sp. 'turquoise' bottom fish, both are female specimens. Is the bottom fish deppii?

Any information to confirm 100% that the female is Herichthys sp. 'poza rica' (Turquoise) is appreciated.
