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?

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

Your fish looks very much yellow too me and very much like a maturing male kenyi.

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.

Typically 6in tops for these guys. Average size for most mbuna spacies.

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"?
