Definitely not a peacock meervanderjoop.

I think freak is right but it seems like there is a similar looking lake tang fish to a kenyi. Either way it's not in aulonocara.

Guarantee its not a tanganyikan, you may be thinking of neolamprologus tretocephalus? Definitely an Mbuna here though

Nah that's not it, just a fish I've seen that resembles a kenyi but isnt. I'm not saying your wrong, I see the kenyi I'd as well, just seems like a lot of stripes, my main point was it's not an aulonocara.

Too many stripes and the body shape is far too elongated for lombardii, it's not a fish that mother nature made...

Agreed, realized that after TMRC posted it and think you both are spot on, looks to be a hybrid "assorted cichlid"
