The background is a bit grainy, but I like the colors a lot in this picture. Well composed and the exposure is spot on. I like the complementary color of the frame. A good one!

The picture are nice but It not a kissing gourami
Hmm it look like a Nandopsis octofasciatum (Jack Dempsey) Family Cichlidae. it a baby.
Helostoma temminckii. The kissing gourami don't have a look like this picture here :
I give the point for the picture not for the information . ;-)

Hi Mukesh, I think your fish looks like he is painted, and so nicely framed too. Beautiful colours all tone in so well together. I love the irridescent blue colours too. Nicely shown, thank you.

Unusual background color!
But I like it. Croping is nice, sharpness on the eye very good and we can feel some blur on its fin showing the slow shutter speed used. Best of all, he seems smiling for the picture ;o)

Este es un hermoso pez (Cichlidae) y la foto es perfecta. Pero hay un error, no es un gourami!!!
Bella foto de una especie de ppez muy rara, yo nunca la vi antes.

The fish is a Salvin's Cichlid from southern Mexico - Amphilophus (Cichlasoma) salvini. I bred these medium sized cichlids for a number of years.
If you want to know more, read this very thorough discussion about the species - http://www.cichlidae.com/article.php?id=109

Lovely colours and composition. You have done a fantastic job to keep this shot sharp at such a low shutter speed, well done. Thanks for sharing,
