I got a tilapia in Kallang, it doesn't look similar to Mozambique or Banded or Zebra tilapia to me because of the black blotch on the tail.

Do you know the exact species?

This looks like a cross breed of Zebra and Flowerhorn Cichlid. If cichlid population density is high in that area, they're likely to cross breed.
