I don't know a lot about fish but the fish I did have in the past was Banded Convicts and that definitely looks just like them. Fun little fish, they are quite interesting to watch. Mine kept having babies though. :o

It does look like a severum - I have a young gold one, and that has exactly the same shape as mine.

Ah, the serenity......nothing more relaxing or beautiful to look at than fish gliding around their tank......

Definatly looks like a young severum. The shape and faded bars are a dead give away. Convicts have more distinct black and white to thier bars even when young.

"responsible fish keeper?... Didn't know there was any other kind"

I am not retarded I just can't spell

Yes, now that I've seen it in a pet shop, it IS in fact a Severum also known as the Deacon Cichlid.
