Goldfish Plant ID

I got this plant from my mother-in-law. She called it a "Goldfish Plant". I think it might be a Columnea. What does everyone else think?

The leaves are fuzzy like an African Violet.

Definitely a Columnea. Goldfish plant is relatively common "common name" for them, as is "dancing dolphin plant." I'm not sure of the specific hybrid you have as there are many, but there's no doubt it's a Columnea.
