"Eye" is not part of it's name, and the eye is not really a distinguishing feature. It's neither of those fish.

Clue: you wouldn't want to eat this fish, but not because it's dangerous, because it's not.

I said it's not dangerous.

And you wouldn't want to eat this fish, so it's not salmon, or trout, however "rainbow" is part of the reason.

Not stickle back.

You wouldn't want to eat it because it's blindingly (is that even a word?) colourful?

No, but members of this suborder can resemble cichlids.

No.

Hint: in aquarium shops, you don't normally see males of these fish in tanks.
