Same here. They dont really even have the same shape as Moorii. Their body height seems shorter almost making them look like a longer bodied tropheus and head slope is different as well.

I was at Pet Supplies Plus about four years ago buying supplies for the kids chinchilla. I always look at the fish. In the $1.99 mixed cichlid tank, I see what looks to be three small Tropheus. I buy them and throw them in the tank with my Ndole. As they grow I can tell they ate Moliro. I eventually give them to a friend who turns those three fish into a very large colony of suprisingly nice Moliro.
I almost bought a few Petsmart Bemba to throw some diversity into my Bemba group. I never thought they looked healthy enough to take a chance.
