    My guess is ocellaris, but count dorsal spines. Percs have nine, ocellaris, eleven.

    I know, thats the problem with fish, they never want to cooperate when you're trying to ID them. Wink But if you could get a good clear picture....

    Is said fish still a young one, or is it an adult? If adult, I still say Ocellaris, based solely on the thin-ness of the black borders on the white. But if its still a young fish it may develop more black as it ages, so who knows. Just my 2 cents.

    I was told that she was along 5 years old so she is far from young!
