Hi cichlidrouse,

Well first off I am far from a Madgascar expert, and your photo's are not the best. However I encourage you to leave a message on the forum here as there are some people who would know more about it then me. Here is the link to leave a message in the Cichlid Room Companion Forum:

Leave your message under the "Other Africans" and I am sure you will get a response.

Also consider reading this article as well as comparing this photo to your fish the author Sonia does frequent the forum above:

Hopefully this will help you narrow down the possibilties.

Cichlid Power!
