What kind of Cichlid?

He is brown with some stripes as seen on the pictures. Not the best quality image sorry.
Got him with a bunch of cichlids for free and only want to keep the yellow labs and I need to rehome him and I want to know what kind he is before I find him a home.

I saw a post in another site asking for the same thing but, when I looked up the male kenyi I get that they are yellow not brown. And I have seen a post that says that they are bumblebee cichlids but I am not sure because the bumblebee has darker marks. I am confused.
The picture of mine looks yellow compared to mine. Do you think that they are yellow and some brown?

Update
But yeah I will go with that it is a kenyi because I have looked for pictures of it on google and there is yellow ones and browner ones.. Thanks

Do you know how big they tend to get?
He is yellow but I guess I never paid much attention because he has like a bit of black when you look close and he does have yellow that is realy noticeable.

Ok so not that big. I was looking at him a while ago and I noticed that he had a hint of like blue in his fins and a little in his body, is that normal?

A hint of blue could just mean that he has recently switched and his still loosing the rest of his blue coloration.

What do you mean by "recently switched"?
