I have. I once picked out an oddball from a load of wild caught 
Pelvicachromis pulcher types that spent all its time rasping algae 
from the sides of the tank. This may not have been obligate 
behaviour, it did go into a tank with heavy algal growth from 
sunight. I still don't know what it was, it looked like a very poorly 
coloured Pelvic. with a truncate caudal. It had broader lips than 
normal but not to the degree seen in some rifts (Petrotilapia etc.).
I don't think the other fish in the tank(Chromidotilapia and a pair of 
the P. 'pulcher' from the same shipment) knew what to make of it.
Unfortunately it got whacked a few months later by the Chromido's 
when they bred, but it never grew beyond a couple of inches in that
