    Looks like a black convict cichlid (archocentrus nigrofasciatus)
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Other options might be a laetacara thayeri or an andinoacara pulcher. The poor condition of the fish (deformed fins, no color, atypical color patterns and stress bars) make identification difficult.

    Yes, they had really bad fight. I had to put them in different tanks.

    The person who gave those to me, said its male and female, well I'm pretty sure its two females. No wonder they didnt like each other.. I just hope they will get better and I find new home for the other female. Then I need to find a male. Of course first I need to know what fish I'm looking for :)

    Looks like the fish is getting beat up, you might want to quarantine him, and look into the aggression issue before something happens.


    Yes, Aequidens portalegrensis i would concur.
