It's Pseudocrenilabrus nicholsi, as mattrox suggested, and it is not from Lake Tanganyika, but from the Congo River basin to the west of the Rift Valley. It's fairly adaptable, but generally does not come from waters as hard or as high in pH as the Rift Valley Lakes. I wouldn't suggest mixing 'em with tangs or malawis for that reason, though temperament-wise they may be able to handle the competition.
