Sorry about the quality of pics, the second is the tail only :P This seems to be a fish that jumped in from somewhere else. It came to me from Germany with my Lithochromis Xanthopteryx. Anyone for certain what it is? Or what it may be?

I think it is a female of Enterochromis cf. paropius, because of the quality of the pics not 100% sure...

Ok thanks Marco, I will try and isolate the fish today and get some better pics. Do you have any pics of some females I could compare to?

Well the Lithochromis Xanthorpteryx took this fish out about a week before I moved, literally the day before moving them to my bro's place. I guess it was for the best, since I don't have to worry about hybrids while I'm gone in this tank.
