Unfortunately thats where it becomes a little bit tricky.

With the yellow lab the male tends to carry more black on the fins and tail but still not a sure fire way of telling.
Similarly with the zebs the males will be far brighter in the tank even at the lfs. Trouble being is that the sub dominant males will have faded colouration like the females.
Hopefully you'll have a good mbuna person at your lfs.

Have kept mbuna before but not my speciality, hope this helps.
