    Thanks Jacques, Mekaeel and Alf and others. Ok, it is definately a Chrysiptera unimaculata as I just saw pics on a Japanese database- even though I cannot understand a word, the pics are identical... Check out: You can click on the link although it looks as if it is only stripes and lines, but definately working:
