    I was wondering if anyone had information on the fish in the picture ( not the clownfish ). They sell it at the LFS. uploadfromtaptalk1455631095879.jpg

    Sorry for the long response time. If none of the saltwater aquarium keepers here have seen it I'll make a guess.
    Based on the two dorsal fins, small size, large eye and big upturned mouth, I wonder whether it may belong in the cardinal fish family (apogonidae) or some related group. Unfortunately, the internet does not seem to have much information on cardinal fish outside of the Banggai and pajama cardinals.

    Ignore above. It's a juvenile barred soapfish. Did I mention I only kept freshwater species?

    It does kind of look like a cardinal huh. To confirm it does appear to be d. bifasciatum
