Adivina el pez! (Game!)

I have gotten feedback from a few of you that you like these weird little posts so here's one! If you don't know why I put the title in spanish, I don't either! So, basically I have used my brain to create a 20 questions like game but quicker, and with only fully aquatic animals(Fish, shrimp, crab, fully aquatic amphibians, etc) Adivina el pez means guess the fish, and that's what the game is. You give 10 clues for people to try and guess the fish, and if someone gets it right, they get a good reaction and/or reply from the person who gave the clues. If you don't give them that, Imma get real angy and cry! Now, you wouldn't want me to cry, I'll even send a picture of my tears. Because there is no way of me telling if this happens, I give doubt benefit!

I start,

1. freshwater

2. Is amphibian

3. They grow up to 2.5 in

4. Mostly rely on smell for food

5. Have bad eyesight

6. They love to explore

7. Are social

8. peaceful

9. 4-5 can live in a 10 gal aquarium

10. Recommended tank size with fish is 20 gal

Guys, look up “fish rostrum”.
I only get sawfish, paddlefish, and goblin sharks.

Halfbeaks?

Yes, but the rostrum itself is basically a pointy nose and doesn’t necessarily have to be the “saw” look.

Should I give another hint?

Well, yes, but I can't think of an aquarium fish with a rostrum.
Another hint would be good.

Ok, here's mine.
It is a somewhat large fish, growing between 6 and around 10 inches in length. It is very deep-bodied and appears round when viewed from the side. It's a species of cichlid. They are primarily herbivorous and will devour any plants you place within the tank, but also love to eat smaller fish.

They come from South America and prefer slightly acidic water, but may adapt to pretty much any conditions. They come in a wide variety of colors and are considered peaceful towards other large fish.

Hint: if you've seen some of my posts from a few weeks ago, I mentioned that I'm planning to get one soon.

3. Sometimes eaten as food
4. Very hardy to a wide range of conditions
5. Enjoys the company of a group
6. Prefers lower temperatures
7. Enjoys scavenging the bottom of the tank
8. Omnivore that eats snails
9. Up to 12” long
10. Can breath air
