Very hard to tell from the pics, as they are huge and blurry.

But looking at the fish, the stripes make me think of a peacock, but I have no idea if they have yellow fins. I am no cichlid expert as well, so someone else would need to confirm.

Obscurotropheus indistictus "Blurry Reef"

That looks like what gets sold as an Acei at my LFS. What that actually means fishwise is an open question, since Mbuna aren't really my bag.

Logic is only the beginning of wisdom
