Pattern around the eyes and also spots ahead of the eyes as opposed to stripes point to the ID I provided. It's a pretty baby fish, I think farm raised, so it would be interesting to see a few more pictures as it grows.

It's P. gibbiceps, simply not as common as they normally are, but still a gibbiceps.
P. weberi looks different in this age.
