What's this guy?

Just got a new addition but I'm not quite sure his exact species. I'm pretty sure hrs a chromis but I don't see this type anywhere. He gets along great with my green chromis. Anyone know?

The shape doesn't resemble that of a yellow tail damsel though. It looks more like a lightning double bar chromis shape wise and the colors are kind of similar, but not quite.

Definitely not a Yellow tail Damsel. Looks almost like an Anthias.

If you really wanna know, you could PM a guy on here called Tony Gill- that's his tag name on here. His job is marine taxonomist. He should be able to tell you the name. You might wanna specify that you're looking for the common name cuz he tends to speak on Latin. Lol.

Well I've been trying for days! I found him but I can't upload a pic to a private message through mobile version and I can't seem to get on through my laptop!! It's like something right there in front of you that you can't grab!!! It's killing me!!

Resolution per tony gill: he's a yellow tail damsel! Not what I expected! But I guess they are docile compared to the normal damsel. Guess ill have to read up on him!
