From this angle it appears to be a venustus

Looks like nimbochromis livingstonii but it's hard to tell from this angle.

I'd have to see the shape of the jaw. It could be compressiceps.

Steli actually is more accurate because venustus usually have darker blotches not bars. My bad appears to be a livingstonii

Here's a picture of my livingstonii. I think they look pretty similar.
