cichlid of some sort, but that's all I got. How ever I have seen them before.

Thinking that looks like one of the haplochrimine cichlids from Lake Malawi - but that extremely downturned mouth is throwing me a loop.

That mottled coloration helps some of these lads look like a dead fish when they lie still - until something smaller tries for an easy snack!
