Identify this fellow.

He found his way into a bag of julies as a tiny fry.
He is the size of N. multifaciatus, but still growing, has a gill spot, coloration on his dorsal fin and egg spots on his/her anal.

Could be several but way too young to tell with any certainty.

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!)

I was hoping that the same shape and finnage as N. multifaciatus would give him away.

His stripes are rather like N. multifaciatus, but more broad.
