Hi ,i think it is a Eight-banded leporinus(leporinus octofasciatum) but i cant be sure because the picture is a bit blurred .The number of bands on them seem to vary ,so is there any chance of a better picture .

Just google Leporinus, you should be able to pin down the species from there. They are cool-looking fish, but tend to be aggressive.

Ya im pretty shure thats the fish I have noticed it is a some what of an aggressive fish but there are lots of cichlids and loaches in my tank so there isnt really a problem. It only really fights with one of the yoyo loaches but its nothing serious. I have another pic enyway though.

That's a beautiful fish - where did you get him?

I think Toddnbecka is right - Leporinus Fasciatus.

Leporinus fasciatus- they need veggies in it's diet and a tight fitting lid. something I found interesting- They have fewer stripes a juveniles and the stripes are wider. as they get older th stripes divide down the middle until they have nine.
