Is my peacock a Cichla Temensis or Cichla Azul?

It was sold as a Cichla Temensis but the coloration and some blue colors in the fish are making me wonder whether it actually is a Temensis or an Azul.

I attached the picture, it had a massive meal just before the picture that's why its so fat. The coloration of the fish in real life is slightly less yellow than in the pictures.

Size: 10cm

Nooooo :( I was looking for Tems for so long
Let it grow out. Seeing some shadowing of faint multiple bars, that’s why I’m saying azul. Unless it’s the pic.

No expert but looks more like a xingu to me
There’s been influx of these. Maybe TheWolfman TheWolfman can help.
