  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to SE Biology. Tank fish are pets so I suggest you search the Pets SE for an identification. There's little biological interest in pet identifications, if you want to leave this question here adding geographical information may avoid some downvotes. $\endgroup$ – Michael_A Mar 28 at 6:38

Looks like Jewel Fish, a cichlid that has been kept for a long time. Hemichromus bimaculatus , native to west Africa a bit different from "African Cichlids" which are from east Africa. Source : Exotic Aquarium Fishes by W. T. Innes ( the guy neon tetras are named after), 1937 ; But I don't think you can find it online .
