That's a Rock Krib, a Victorian-type Hap. Paralabidochromis sauvagei. That might be a female, as this is one species where the females actually have some color. Males are usually much more colorful.

Thank you so much! It is supposed to be a male, according to the supplier. I received an“All male hap and peacock package”, but none of them were labeled... or more likely, I got too excited looking at the fish and did not pay enough attention to the packaging.
