The ochre although I don't love the color. I think you have a fair amount of blue.

+1.

My female Kenyi were much better looking when they were small and now they're a faded blueish color most of the time, can barely see bars. The male is a nice sharp yellow-orange though.

*UPDATE*
So far I have procured a group of Labeotropheus Trewavasae Chilumba Orche and a group of Afra White Top Hara.
I'd like to hear your suggestions for a third and final species for this set up.

I would do the maingano, but the membe deep should work as well.

I very much like the ones I have. Though I'd like to replace my Kenyi with something else as soon as my lfs has a suitable replacement.

I have the Membe Deep in a separate tank for now. But for this project I was thinking maybe Elongatus Neon Spot just not sure how drab the females will be.
