They pretty much are. I would assume you'll keep them in a species tank. I got mine from Greg Steeves years ago and have never been with anything else. It may be a bit to get some fry as I haven't been feeding them to breed, but just as maintenance. If you don't mind young fry it will be sooner. They are also registered CARES fish.
I have read that they are pretty shy fish, probably won't see them much in a community tank. I have also read that they are tough and will hold their own even though they are only 2.5 - 3". Soon as they get big enough, they will be going into a 33 gallon long. Once I establish a thriving community, I'll be glad to share some males since male vics don't like other male vics closing in on their harem and I doubt I'll be able to keep any more than a couple males with each other. I really appreciate this, I've exhausted all online sources looking for these guys.
Actually I have a female kenyi gold. I bought a pair (male and female) in the spring of 2015. The male died of Malawi bloat shortly after we got them (one of only a few fish that we lost). The female is fine. You can see her in the top of the attached photo. I bought them from 'Captain cichlid'. He called them a Christmas Fulu (not sure of the spelling). She's been pretty much invisible to the other fish but she does occasionally defend a spot from other cichlids, but is otherwise pretty quiet.

Christmas fulu are definitely different fish. Those are Xystichromis phytophagus; a much more common Victorian. Your female is not a kenya gold. I highly doubt that he had kenya gold. They are extremely rare in the hobby. Females look like this:
