Based on shape and snout, I'd say Labeotropheus trewavasae. There are several different collection points (color morphs) in the profiles section (under Malawi - Mbuna). None of the pics look exactly like yours, but West Thumbi Is. seems the closest. FYI that round fleshy snout is the giveway for the Labeotropheus genus.

If you like the pattern of that fish you could look for some Blueberry Zebra's (Metriaclima sp. "Zebra Blue")
