Please help me ID this african cichlid

All I want to know is it's species. I THINK it's part of the "metriaclima"? Can anyone confirm or deny that? I know it's probably a mixed breed that's relatively unidentifiable, but I want to know if it's Metriaclima, and will it breed with my kenyi or red zebra which are both in that species? I tried to attach pictures, but I'm new to this and I'm not sure if I did it correctly. Sorry for the poor picture quality but I think it does the trick. Thanks for the help!

Looks to be an OB zebra. Please do not cross breed these fish there are enough unidentifiable hybrid mbunas out there. If you do breed them don't sell the fry or give them away.

Thank you for the reply. And yes I'm aware of the moral and ethical dilemmas everyone faces about it, that's half the reason I wanted to know if it would mate with my other tank-mates.
