Any idea where this is from? Looks suspiciously like the Yellow Lab (Labidochromis caeruleus)

It's not a Yellow Lab by any stretch of the imagination. It is a larger shell dweller from the rift lakes. A very good pic of one there :)

From Lake Tanganyika. A little shell dweller. Cool fish. Far different from the Yellow lab which is a Malawi Mbuna
