Check licorice gourami. Looks like one. There may be some closely related species too.

+1 The Wet Spot is a great place with knowledgeable staff and a good selection of rare fish. Whenever I'm in the area I try to buy from them.

They were only classified in 2012 as a newly discovered species, there may be a wait for them to appear in aquariums.
