    LOL bud it is most likely a Plectroglyphidodon species. @richardmatlock is the SA fish ID guy to give you the correct ID.

    Look at these links to get a better idea.

    common name, Dusky Damsel.
    Not at all as aggro as the Sergeant mayor damsel. I had one, full grown about 17cm. And the little blue yellow tail damsel took her on.

    Only log in each morning, but yes 1 - A. notatus. I collected the same Xenia a few months back at Park Rhynie - going strong in Squeal's tank.
