Most if not all mouthbrooders will interbreed with one another so the culprit could be tricky to find lol.What other fish do you have in with her?

How long ago did you get the Kenyi she might have already been carrying?

@ Fishguy: I've had it for about 3 months and I was positive it wasn't holding when I got it. I always check before they go in the main tank.

All Mbuna and they will all crossbreed with each other so you have hybrid fry of some sort.As long as your happy to just keep them then I say good luck and I hope they turn out to be real beauties

You said that was the fish they were stripped from? Female Kenyis are blue and black stripes. That's the coloration of a male. While females will take on the male coloration it doesn't look like a Kenyi.
