Hey all, sorry about not having a pic here, my camera is not uploading at the moment, so I will try to describe this fish. Any help or a point in the right direction would be awesome.
This fish is still a juvie, maybe 2.5 inches. It has a white bottom lip, a greyish hap-shaped body, but you can see hints of green/tourqouise in certain light conditions. Cant remember exactly what the fins look like, but I want to say they were orange or yellowish.
Once again, I know thats kind of vague, but any help would be great.

Sounds like a “white lipped orange finâ€

Yes, I did try looking through the profiles, both Africans and New world and couldnt find anything that looked similar. Was hoping that it sounded somewhat familiar to someone.

I looked through those, nothing I could find looked close. I will see if I can get my camera working when I get home and hopefully post a picture.

Ok, camera is still not working, but on closer inspection now that I am home, the lower portion of his body is getting a reddish tint, and the circle around his eye is also reddish. There is a black spot on the dorsal fin. Everything else as mentioned originally. The more I look at him the more I want to say South/Central American...any ideas?
