Help me ID this fish!

So this fish was sold to me as a yellow lab, and I'm beginning to wonder if its a hybrid? Maybe a yellow lab/peacock hybrid is what I'm thinking. What are your opinions? And this guy seems to be the most aggressive one in my tank even though I have 2 kenyi's.

Sorry it was inevitable. We all need a laugh!

Not a male Kenyi.Its shape is all wrong and yellow lab colour can vary a little.

Yes they are. I have noticed this particular fish chasing my Labidochromis caeruleus around a lot and sometimes corners them and does what looks like, forgive me I don't know the correct term for this, vibrating its body. Isn't that a sign if attempting it to mate?
