Question Fish similar to Lemon Cichlid

I'm trying to find the name of a Cichlid I am not sure if its the Lemon Cichlid but google pictures look a lot like it. Is there any other Cichlid that look a lot like them by chance? The one's I have in mind are quite skinny long body, yellow and not much more then 2-2.5". But reading up Lemon's it say's 4" for them so simply because of the listed size I'm not really sure any more if that's indeed the fish and wonder is there's a similar looking cichlid out there?

I'm not aware of any really similar looking fish. Yellow labs are about the closest thing color-wise (although not usually as "orange" looking) but are bigger and have a decidedly different body shape.

Maybe Julidochromis ornatus? It only gets about 3" but has that elongated body shape. It's yellow but has prominent horizontal black stripes.

Nop def NOT Yellow Labs I had those, big gang, before. These one's are skinner then the yellow lab's and a lil shorter and do not have the black strip on the fins, they're solid yellow.
The Julidochromishave a similar body shape but the one's I have in mind are solid yellow no strips or dots on them.

Hmmm may really be a Lemon then but I never seen them being 4" before - Wrong info online or do they really grow that big? I was hoping I could house them in my 30g but if they indeed grow that large then that's not a option I think.

Mitch - Nice to see ya back here, missed you man!

Neolamprologus Leulupi common name is Lemon cichlid. The females only get to 2-3", the males to 4". Are you asking for a fish similar to these?
