I too have a couple of tattoo's (couple being the loosest word in the sentance) and consider myself an expert...maybe not. Have you thought about having a Cichlid tattoo custom done. I know if I sat down with my favorite tattoo artist and gave him a pic and explained everything I wanted out of it he would custom design a piece for me...then tattoo it on me...here is an example of the work he has done on me
My Tattoo in a magazine
if he was able to create that then I am sure that an artist in your area could do the same!

If I was talking to my artist I would take him a pic of the fish, include measurements (ex. 5") and talk with him about the temperment of the fish (is it super aggressive, or passive). Nex choose some tattoo's of fish (the japanese fighting fish) where you like the attitude of them to give the artist a basic idea of how you want it to look...
I think if it takes 2 or 3 meetings with the artist before you finally get a final picture of what you want it to look like then you should be satified. You know what I am saying...
Full grown compressicepts are pretty bad ass looking with the red and blue and the big pointy bottom jaw.

I don't have any myself but I am kind of annoyingly snobby about them. If you sit down with your artist of choice the two of you should be able to come up with something really cool. Everyone I know with ink has had a custom design done for them except for one of my friends who has the traditional skull and crossbones on her neck.
