can't find indentity for weird fish online

Hi i'm new here. Like a week ago my friend and I were fishing in a lake and this weird fish got caught in his net.
it dwells in the bottom of his pond. Its all black and its skin is pretty hard especially the middle part. Its like its layerd with hard armour skin. oh and its missing an eye. I've tried searching online for it but didn't find anything thing. so anynody know?

Looks like a monster plecostomus to me. Big, ugly and worth a little pride. Nice fish. Definitely a keeper in my book.

hey guys I also caught a small eel-tailed cat fish and put it in my fish tank. But i read on the link below that they have strong poisenous fins which worries me when I stick my hand in my fish tank. Its nocturnal since it only comes out of hiding at night. Man my lake is full of different fishes.

i'll post some pics of the eel-tailed catfish as soon as it comes out from hiding

That is not a bass my friend. Looks like a Cichlasoma managuense.

I finally got a picture of the mysterious nocturnal fish fish I caught at the lake. My guess "eel tale catfish"
