I have answered you on your tank thread, Sean. I am nearly sure that it is a "one spot damsel".... Hope I am correct!

With the markings I am still convinced it is a juvenile cross' damsel

Ok, give me a couple of minutes, I'll see if I can get a better shot, but that small fish is way too fast for my focus...

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...
