It is from deepwater (which is the main reason it's so poorly known), but it's not a Pseudochromis.

Yes, that's the reason I don't often guess at the species. I mainly come on and give hints if people are struggling with an identification. Having said that, I'm not all that good on many of the freshwater groups. I am impressed with how many species some of the players know.

*sigh*

This is not an identification thread. This is a game where the person who successfully guesses the last fish posts the next one.

You should post your question in the cichlid forum.

It seems like you're not alone Fishobsessed7. I guess I may as well give the answer then: Pseudoplesiops collare. It's not a common fish ... I'm aware of only 4 museum specimens, all from deep water in Indonesia. It has been recently recorded from the vicinity of Cebu, Philippine Islands, but from what I can see in the photos of fish from there, they appear to represent a closely related, but new species.

So here's another one to identify. Still marine (sorry freshwater people!), and one that lives in my neck of the woods.
