    He really looks like a ciclid of some kind to me.

    Lol, but I'm not too reliable. :)

    agree that its a cichlid but beyond that I'm not really sure. It has some real nice colors, wouldn't mind one myself.

    It's absolutely a cichlid. I'd say South American. It looks small in which case I'd guess something from the apistogramma family based on the tail shape and the rear part of the dorsal fin.

    Could it be a Golden dwarf cichlid?

    Good call!!! That would explain the absence of markings on the body which is quite rare for apistogramma.

    could be this apisto xingu....xingum01.jpg
    It could also be a curviceps cichlid. I'm probably wrong but these are what this fish reminded me of, with shape especially.

    Sorry to say, but I don't think that any of the guesses are valid. For one, the fish looks a lot too large to be of typical dwarf cichlid size, and it also has a distinct opercular spot which I don't think neotropical cichlids have. I'd say it is something of old world descent, although I am not sure what.

    Well, the fish could be a lot smaller than the image portrays. It's a close-up, probably using a macro lens. Can we get a tank shot with it? I'm leaning toward an apisto species, as well...

    When in doubt, ask yourself... W.W.L.S (What would Lee Say)?

    We got some good guesses here, it's a very usable picture but we do need some sense of size.
