The only thing I can figure is that it is Metriaclima barlowi with a bit of photoshop to darken the fins:

I would agree. The fins are a bit dark, but like was mentioned - I think its from the photoshopin' done to it.

I highly doubt it is the M. barlowi or M. aurora - as the colors aren't right.

Yeah, the body shape is even estherae.

The fins probably aren't photoshopped darker, they're probably just cut out from a photo and put on a white background, so the black b/g of the tank was showing through them.

That's a good thought.

The fish in the add really doesn't look exactly like anything I know of. And I do agree that the fins could be darker as a result of cutting it out of a photo with a dark background.

So it if isn't photoshopped there are only a couple of non-hybridized non-tropheops mbuna that are yellow on yellow stripes M. estherae isn't one of them but M. barlowi is and M. aurora "yellow" is close.
