Unknown identify white cichlid fish

About 2 1/2 years I kept this unknown identify white cichlid in my aquarium tank. I bought this beautiful blue eyes, white, & silver stripes from my local pet store. My cichlid passed away today. Rip! Sadly this fish have been sick with trouble breathing. I don't have any clue where does this fish comes from. What is the type of this fish? Is it from Lake Tanganyika or Lake Victoria?

Oh how I wish I was a fish to swim in the deep blue sea. I would swim up and down and all around in laps of two or three. There would be no rules to follow, all fun down here. On land rules ae trouble, a real pain in the rear. Humans are not wanted down here and for them you must always look. For they only want to see us fish dangling from hook. A sea full of wonder, yes that's the life for me. Oh how I wish to be a fish and one day soon I'll be!

In death he has a name. His name is Robert Paulson.

I'm sorry I have issues, in other places on the web... that would be funny.

On a serious note, it looks kind of like Archocentrus spilurum

Re: Unknown identify white cichlid fish

Cichlassoma spilurum, I would say. but the stripes are a bit faded. Probably the genus has now been renamed.

A lot of things I do not know. Learning has no end

Re: Unknown identify white cichlid fish

Nope it isn't! Finally I got a reply from someone. It is Labidochromis Caeruelus Nkahli. It is exactly what my fish looks like Mbuna Cichlid. This cichlid comes from Lake Malawai. I looked up on the name of Labidochromis Caeruelus Nkahli images from internet computer. Thanks to you all for your big help!
