Any aquarium/fish experts on GC

My father has kept tropical fish for a few years, he has a fish in his tank which he has been unable to identify, does anyone know what kind of fish the following is?

It is huge, must be close to a foot long, it likes to scoop up the gravel from the tank, munch on it for a while before spitting it back out.

Anyone have any ideas?

Could well be, google image search shows a few which are exactly the same colour. :smashin: Although looking at the description, they grow to a max of 12 cm whereas the one in the photograph is at least twice that size.

** edit **

Just been told that when he is angry he changes colour, goes a lot darker. (if that helps)
