It is Placidochromis milomo (VC-10), the lips in captive specimens, especially those far removed from wild stock are not very enlarged at all. I currently have an 8" male and you can barely see the enlarging of the lips. It is beleived to have a direct relation with the fish using the lips to seal off crevasses in rocks; in order to suck out food in the wild.
