Get a pic up if you want guesses that makes sence.
Copadichromis borleyi (Kadango) is a common fish in LFSs be they bred far too much from a small stock and only a shadow of the wild type.
All thre best James

Take a look at the other photos in that link. I've see the borleyi (spelling?) called a kadango.
