    It looks like some kind of cichlid, sorry that's all I can offer... Any chance of a better lit side pic?

    From the third picture, for me it looks like a Leopard Bush Fish which so happens to be a type of Cichlid :)

    Looks like a Melanochromis Auratus to me. Its a type of african cichlid. Any way you could get a picture from the side with more light?

    That third one was from Taylor Nicole Deans video wasn't it? If I remember it's a Leopard bush fish or African bush fish.

    Yeah I really wanted to know what it was because it looked cool. They are freshwater

    The Leopard Bushfish is not a cichlid. It's an anabantid, related to the gouramies.

    Black and yellow is definitely an Auratus.

    My bad :)
    Wasn't careful in reading a brief description of the fish, one of its other names is 'spotted cichlid'. I guess thats where my confusion came from :banghead:
