This can't be an electric yellow...

Today I bought a few electric yellows and acei. When looking closely, I saw this little guy and I'm perplexed on what kind he is. I've had a few electric yellows and this guy does not look like one. Any ideas on what type of cichlid this is?Click image for larger version

His fins have black edges like a yellow lab but he looks very orange with black-ish vertical and horizontal stripes. His body shape also looks more elongated than normal

Does not look like a yellow lab to me either.
Unless fish is just scared and lost normal colour.

This can't be an electric yellow...

Except that this fish lacks vertical stripes and has a horizontal stripe that no crabro has
