What kind of fish is this?

Hello everyone,

I was at petsmart the other day, and I noticed this little guy in their white cloud tank. Obviously it's not a white cloud, and the clerk at the store had no idea. Anyway, I was hoping someone could help me identify the little bugger. It has some features of a cichlid, but the shape of its mouth looks like a gourami. Let me know.

The color oddly reminds me of paradise gourami.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

I think it may be a paradise gourami, however it is possible that a gourami and a white cloud have bred.
