Unknown fish

Hello, I'm new to this so I'm not really sure what I'm doing, but I'll have a go and see what happens, lol. I recently purchased 4 yellow mollies for my community tank turns out it was three mollies and this little terror, has anyone got any idea what it is? I'm thinking it might be a chiclid of some kind, can anyone please help. Thankyou

Yes that looks like a cichlid to me. I'm thinking that it's african of some sort but I'm partially clueless when it comes to them.

That's a yellow lab. Definitely not compatible with mollies. I'd rehome it asap.

Ok, I'll take it back, I'm not sure how it got mixed in, they should take better care, it doesn't seem to bother my other fish too much unless they get too close to it, how big wil it grow? Could I get another small tank and keep it by it's self, thankyou for your help

Yellow labs need to be in a 4' tank minimum... and as it gets bigger, it would likely kill off every fish in the tank. They're only compatible with other fish from lake malawi.

Hard to tell, to me it looks like some sort of killifish? I dunno that's my best guess.

I think that's the Peacock Gudgeon, also known as Peacock goby, Tateurndina ocellicauda.
