This is a central american cichlid, I will do some checking and get back to you with a specific species name. It looks like possibly a black belt cichlid, but I want to check a few others first to be sure.
Either way, I can tell you it is going to get quite large, prefer softer water (7.0 - 7.5 is ideal), and need warm temps (78-82 degrees).
Foods like hikari cichlid pellets, frozen formula 1 food, worms, etc. will be needed.
How large of a tank are you keeping it in? What other fish are in the tank with it? This is going to be a somewhat aggressive fish, and very territorial, so lots of decorations are a good idea.
I'll be back when I have a specific name for you.
