It looks like a zebra variant. Sorry I can't help more than that.

The second and third pics look like he might be a hybrid or at least a less common hap. Parts of it look like a fryeri. I'm a bit rusty with my ids so I might be off.

First could be a Cynotilapia type. There are many Zebra and Cynotilapia typres that look very much alike for females or males without color.

Second looks like a S. Fryeri "Electric Blue Hap" , pure i dunno.

Impossible to identify a location (Lumbaulo) for the fryeri, so you are best to drop the notation.

The other fish is likely some type of Metriaclima zebra, or a mbuna hybrid. It really isn't possible at this time to give any accurate ID of the fish. Perhaps if you add a few pictures, it might help, but the fish is still fairly young.

None of my fryeri have ever had that much red in them. They'll have some in the anal fin, but never in the body or on the dorsal fin. That is the reason I stayed away saying it was a pure fryeri.
