    from the eye in the first pic id go with dotty back (pseudochromis as Treyman says) and as a stab in the dark id go with Pseudochromis dilectus.

    But that fish is stressed and not showing colours at the mo, rather wait a day or two, give it some structure (plastic pipes etc) to take some cover in and then try get a better pic.
