    Tropical fish but what is it please?

    Had this fish a few weeks now,it was the only one they had at the aquatic place and was in a tank on its own,they didnt know what it was and called another guy in to try and determine what species it is but he didnt know either,I got it purely for its size (about 5 and a half inches) as it lives happily with my oscars,it does have a row of teeth
    I've hunted the net to try and find out exactly what it is,wondered if it was some sort of malawi but not so sure

    Any ideas????
