No, another hint, the most commonly kept one has panda in its hobby name, but in my opinion looks more like a bumble bee.

I’ve done an unhealthy amount of research on various tiny cichlids in the past. I’ve kept a few, but mostly just wanted to know about as many different types as I could. Especially the South American ones.

Clues
1. A scaleless fish
2. DOES NOT have barbels
3. Mostly dark colors
Just FYI otos do have barbels!! They're just very small!

Ok, here we go. It’s a small (around 1 inch) fish in the gourami family native to ponds and slow moving rivers in southeast Asia. It’s known for creating small “croaking" noises when kept in an aquarium. The genus name starts with T and the species name starts with P. They do best in a heavily planted nano aquarium. They have a base color of brown or gray with tiny, extremely shiny silver, blue, or green scales dappled throughout. They also tend to have some red on their fins. The eye tends to be bright blue.

Croaking gourami? I saw these at a LFS when I went there, they looked like larger sparkling gourami.
I was actually going for sparkling gourami. They can also "croak". I’ll count it as correct since you mentioned it.
