Nice pics in this thread and the other thread, by the way!

Can you post a clear broadside view of this mbuna and also does display well-defined stripes at times?

yes its head turns a dark purple and stripes are a similar colour when its dominant, but stripes only form till half way down the body unlike other zebras i have.

It looks like a Rusty cichlid (Iodotropheus sprengerae) to me to,
but I can't be sure, here's a pic for reference,
does yours look anything like the one in the pic?
nice fish btw.
