The fish that is in your pic is either the Speckled Damsel pictured here

Or the Whitetail Damsel pictured here

I would say it looks more like the Whitetail Damsel, the 2nd picture was a little better but it your fish and you would be able to pick which one it is.

A sign of an angel fish is what I like to call it a fat upper lip. :D

Are you taking about the rear or the front fake eye. Like I said its not my fish and I can't see it in person. It could be a darker version of the top pic, or the bottom pic didn't develop the fake eye in the front. Each fish has his own trait. :D

If not, a white-tailed speckled damsel.

I would say you fish is definitely a damsel; could be a Stegastes Pelicieri (Mauritius Gregory) as with a lot of damsels the juveniles look differnt from the adults.

Oceane cichlid and cats mostly

Definitely not an angel. A sure-fire way to tell if it's an angel or not is to look at the operculum. All angels have a spine pointing backwards on their gill cover. It's definitely some type of damsel, but I'm not sure what type.

Definitely not an angel, it's a damsel although many small damsels look very similar so until it gets a little larger and gets its adult coloration, it may be hard to determine it to a species.
