    It looks like a damsel of sorts. The pic is too blurry to make it out properly

    yaaaaaa very very very similar... i'll take a nice pic tomorrow, mine has two spots and two strips and more red on the dorsal fin.

    BTW the lion has lost intrest, he is too zippy for the lions lazy hunting style.
