Its looking very much like a female peacock of some sort but without a clearer picture cannot really tell for sure.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

Bottom one is a Pseudotropheus saulosi juvenile.

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

Thanks for the info I thought the same thing but this fish has stripes like a peacock the venustus has like blotches not stripes so I don't think it's that but I could be wrong.The second fish is not pseudotropheus either I have one of those in my tank, totally different looking fish the white fish has the same type of body and fins as the first fish I posted. Sorry not trying to b an ass hole just trying to find out what these fish really are and they very well could b a mixed breed.
