Hi All

Caught this fish while catching live bait over the weekend - never seen one before - caught in the port Stephens area - any ideas on what it is - it was approx 15cm long

I'll move this to the aquarium. You might get more interest there.

Definitely in the damselfish family Pomacentridae.

I would guess it is an immaculate damsel, Mecaenichthys immaculatus

Certainly had me.

I looked at that and it doesn't seem to have the Blue Edging or Spot ETC on the fish. But they seem to have a major change from Juveniles to Adults so maybe its a mature adult, male or female.

But if its not that ???

At 15cm it would be fully grown so should have the blue margins.

Also the anal fin looks too square. The ventral fins don't look long enough either but that could be a gender thing.

I don't have a better suggestion though.

I have had blue chromis in my saltwater tank but never that colour but similar shape.

It may be difficult to positively ID this but we will go with Black Bandit.....well done
