Question What kinda fish is this??

I am having the hardest time trying to figure out what type of fish this is. I cant remember exactly where I got him (I call it a he) at, but I know I dont want another one cause he's kinda mean, Im guessing he's semi-aggressive because he nips fins and has killed; my betta, some white clouds, zebra Danios, and a platy or two. Soo Im kinda afraid to get any fish until I find out what exactly he is. Sorry my pics arent very good but he's a bluey grey color, and the tips of his fins are and orangy color, and he's about 3inches long.

Could you take a photo from a little way back from the tank, just so we can get a better idea? If we could see him in the tank clearly someone will probably know.

I tried to take more pics. Sorry theyre not very good, Im having water issues right now :( And no he doesnt have the skinny feeler fins on the front like I see other gouramis have, so I dont know if he's a different type or what. I went to petsmart and walmart to see if they had one like him and they didnt. I cant find him anywhere LOL

Maybe some type of Chichlid? Maybe this Panda Dwarf Chiclid - the discription sounds similar to what you posted:

That's a paradise fish. Anabantids related to gouramis and bettas. They're actually a cold water species rather than a tropical fish so should be kept at lower temperatures than typical tropical fish. They can also be very aggressive, especially toward other anabantids.
