Cichlids can be pretty tricky, but it may be Hemichromis sp. I saw a bunch of this darker color variety in the solution holes when working down in the Everglades.

This fish was not caught in Florida, in fact very far from Florida. The only cichlids where we caught this are jack Dempsey.  

Ya just Can't catch um from the couch.

They sure are purrty to look at thats for sure! Really tough fighters too, I can see why they were named after the boxer. For such a tencaious fish they are very easily spooked tho.
