I have a small colony of these and the same given to them when I arrived was M. callainos Chidunga White Zebra. Clearly that is incorrect. These look like a Labidochromis species, but I'm not sure which. Males have a yellow forehead as pictured, while females are solid white all around. Very stocky, short bodies and narrow faces. I can get more photos if needed but this captures most of their appearance.

Yes, look like a Caeruleus type of Labidochromis. If pure, they seem like a rare but cool fish.

Not sure there really is a Callainos White from Chindunga or Chidunga

Thanks. Always hesitant to prescribe locations to fish that have been mislabeled but this certainly seems like the closest fit.
