That is a golden Osphronemus goramy. They will grow OVER TWO FEET in length, and therefore require a gigantic tank. In fact, they are aqua cultured for food in many asian countries. They will eat or bully anything smaller than them. Their diet should be increasingly made up of vegetable matter as they get older.

Personality wise, they are great fish. Very intelligent and interactive. They will learn to recognize you and greet you, eat out of your hand, etc. If I had the space for this fish I would certainly keep one.
