we have a cichlid section of the forum that you will likely have more luck if you post your cichlid based questions there. not everyone looks at every section of the forum (at least I know I don't!)

Idotropheus sperengerae (Rusty cichlid) and probably a Melanochromis cyaneorhabdos (Electric Blue Johanni aka Maingano) with some vertical stripe patterns.

Thank you for your assistance. You are right on both accounts. I guess it is a Maingano. The stripping is unique, but by it being female, it only make sense.
