Looks like a chinese algae eater...Gyrinocheilus aymonieri
When small, it's a nice algae eater for a community tank... Unfortunately, when it gets around 6-7 inches long it will stop eating algae, become territorial and mean-spirited able to torment larger fish to death.
It maxes out at around 11 inches long, but I suspect it would get even bigger in ideal conditions.
The Chinese algae eater has a distinct 'sucker' mouth, so I assume thats what you have.
If it's mouth is less sucker-like, it could be a Siamese algae eater, which is a peaceful community fish.
edit- now I'm doubting myself. could be a flying fox. Definately one of those three... Get to googling. :)
