I thought these might be C. bilineatus but apparently that species is not commonly encountered in the pet trade, I am wondering if they might be Cw029 or Cw105?

Hi,

I would tentatively agree with CW029. I have not kept those myself, so I only know pictures of adult specimen and not too much about variability etc. However, the dark broad stripe going from the eye towards the dorsal fin spine insertion seems to me a good diagnostic feature of this form which other form usually don't have.

Cheers,

Thank you. I was leaning towards CW105 on a superficial appearance but the stripe from eye to dorsal seems to rule them out. A shame there are not more photos of CW029 but one other similarity it has to my fish is the small spot at the caudal end of the central stripe.
Cheers,
Andrew
