    Hey, welcome to MASA. Do you have a tank yet?
    I have no idea what fish it is but maybe someone else can help out.

    Not the best pic, but could be an adult twinspot damsel, Chrysiptera biocellata

    But yes, a picture under normal lights would help.

    Sorry, but about nothing.

    As juveniles they are beauties, but once they grow up they are not that desirable. And they are rather aggressive.

    Probably best suited for a shop that sells live rock .. They could put him in there to keep the system running nicely..feed him etc .. ...They are very aggro ..
