i'll agree...hemichromis bimaculatus (jewel cichlid). i've got one myself. if you end up with a breeding pair, watch out, they get really mean when breeding and won't get along with any other fish.

In my experience, they get really mean regardless of spawning. I wouldn't call them community-friendly fish and would suggest that they fare best with moderately aggressive American cichlids.
