looks like a Bullrout .

If it is it has venomous spines ( like a stone fish ) .

I would advise abundant caution in handling it .

google Search  "Notesthes robusta"

Yep Bullrout. Have one in my tank just about same size as that one looks. Apparently they can be hard to get eating in a tank, and mine wouldn't eat for about the first week. But now it actually comes right to the surface and takes floating pellets. Beautiful fish, they make a great unique display fish.  Just have to be super vigilant when doing tank maintenance lol
