These pictures were taken at the Columbus Zoo.  If anyone can help with the proper identification it would be much appreciated.  I've done my best, but I'm sure that I'm far from perfect here.  The Columbus Zoo has four species they are keeping as a part of the Lake Victoria Species Survival Program; Harpagochromis sp "two stripe white lip", Labrochromis ishmaeli, Astatotilapia piceatus and Oreochromis variabilis.  They also have a large display tank with other species.
