Here's a pic. of my Saulosi when not in the fighting mood(also grayish): :D

That is not an enlongatus chewere. A male Psuedotropheus sp. enlongatus "chewere" does not have blue vertical stripes that extend the entire vertical portion of the body, they are more of a diamond shape along the approximate center of the torso. That fish was one of the Ps. sp. enlongatus yellow tail varieties of which there are several quite similar looking ones. It was however quite nice looking :thumb:

As for the original question about what the fish is......my best guess is socolofi x enlongatus hybrid.
