Nice looking fish. It looks like a Red Zebra Mbuna or young Midas Cichlid head but I think the fish may be mixed. Welcome to Cichlidaholics Cichlid Forum.

I kinda thought of that or a frontosa (hope I spelled that right) he’s pretty small maybe 3 inches and he’s a year old body is pretty slim

The body and fins look a lot like a Blue Dolphin (Moorii). It is a nice looking fish.
