That is Heterotilapia buttikoferi. It is commonly known as a Buttikoferi or just Butti.
An older common name was Hornet Tilapia but I don't think this name ever caught on and is really not in use today.
Gets very large, quickly. Can get well over a foot long.
It is considered to be one of the most aggressive cichlids. Might tolerate tough , small fish like mbuna, but probably won't get along with any other large cichlid it sees as it's competitor.
