agree that its a cichlid but beyond that I'm not really sure. It has some real nice colors, wouldn't mind one myself.RIP Shark Bait, my Red Tail Shark :(

Could it be a Golden dwarf cichlid?Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.

Good call!!! That would explain the absence of markings on the body which is quite rare for apistogramma. http://www.seriouslyfish.com/species/nannacara-anomala/

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...
