I was at the local pet store next to my work the other day and they have this fish which is labeled as a "yellow lapid".

The employees are kind of clueless, but it's shaped just like apistogramma agassizi only it's a really vibrant yellow colour with black highlights.

So I'm pretty sure it's some kind of south american dwarf cichlid but I can't find any information anywhere online. Has anyone heard of this variety or kept anything similar?

Probably Labidochromis caeruleus, a Lake Malawi cichlid, which goes by various common names incorporating some combination of the words "electric lemon yellow lab labido labidochromis". Plenty of information available on the net if you choose to research it further, including here in the Gallery section.
