That isn't the right picture. I know what a clownfish is.

That's the right picture^^^

I hate the new mobile app. And the new photobucket app. They suck.

That's an adult saltwater batfish (either orbicularis or Tierra) Can't tell for sure from this pic. Check out these pages:
Tierra Batfish (Platax teira) owner experiences.

Orbicular batfish - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Either way, they get really large so be prepared with a large aquarium for them

Hope this helps

Def not a Juvenile. Here's a juvy Oric:

here's a Juvy Tierra:

And for good measure , here's a juvy Pinnatus:
http://www.bluezooaquatics.com/image...x_pinnatus.jpg


The only real difference that I've seen in the adults of these fish is the Pinnatus are a more silvery color as adults than the Orbics and Tierras. They all lose those lovely long fins and juvy colors ( Just like kids, you wish they would stay small forever. ) lol

Hope this helps
