What are these fish?
A friend of mine has had these fish for over a year, but doesn't know what kind they are. I'm not sure how he ended up with them... but whoever he bought them from ALSO didn't know what they are. Can someone help identify them?

It is a species in the genus Hemiodus, family Hemiodontidae. There are 19 species in this genus. The ones usually seen are similar in patterning. Here's a link to a page with some of them:

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
