Does anyone know the name of the fish in the picture?

This fish is currently 8cm in length - apparently, it is related to the arowana and it can grow much longer. I suppose it is an albino since it has a white body and red eyes.

Thanks for your help in advance!

If you google under images "albino bichir" you'll see that exact same fish. My vote if for albino bichir.

I'm not 100% postive, but I think it's an Albino Cuvier Bichir. Cool fish!

Actually, you are completely correct in your guess. The one related to arowanas, are African butterfly fish. Bichirs are far from being related to arowanas although both share the fact they are primitive fish.
