Raven1991, can you get a better photo? The odd angle of the picture, with the fish's head against the glass, really deforms the shape of the fish.

Cheers, Eric

My first thought was Dekeyseria brachyura...

Hi

Definitely a Panaqolus, I think Jools is right.

It's an L002. Jools is right.

The picture is at an odd angle which is distorting the shape of the fish. Dekeyseria do not have that pattern on the face at all.
