What is it? A fish? Do you know the scientific name? Is it from Malawi?

Buy an orange from any grocery store and then let it sit out for a month.

Are you possibly looking for an OB Clown?

The closest thing I have seen in my area and online are the Zimbabwe rock lithobates.

Another option near that color description is a high quality yellow lab, with black markings, when they mature they take on a slightly orange yellow color, and look really nice. More yellow than orange, but nice. Z Rocks are gorgeous when they color up, but I think they have to be really happy and it may take a long time.

Looks like my Z rock I bought online here in the US. Depending on his mood and substrate will change from dark to light.

I don't know if Otopharynx lithobates Black Orange is a new trade name, or line bred, or what it is.

This is mostly a North American based forum, so you aren't going to get answers as to where to find it anyway. Just like us, I would recommend using Google and going from there.

It doesn't looks much different than the old Red Top Aristochromis, which was the trade name for the lithobates commonly available in the hobby before the Z rocks came into the hobby and displaced them. Maybe a bit darker, but not much. Easy to pick out a few darker specimens and line breed them.
