Hi Twentz,

Well no I hadn't until you asked! This a fairly new goby cichlid from West Africa, in the upper and middle areas of the Niger River System. The Scientific name is Gobiocichla wonderi. When I searched for Cross River, which I assume is a location, I got the scientific name as Labrochromis polli, but in the latest info on West Africans by Lamboj states that L. polli is a synonym of G. wonderi.

Hope that helps, you should be able to find more info with the scientific name.
