Need a scientific name

I found one source that called this a Black Bonnet Damselfish. The closest thing I can find to it is a Chrysiptera rollandi, but that one's slightly different.


They spawned a week ago.

Cool. Wasn't sure where it should go.

Ive not seen that species before and am far from a Damsel expert, but just after doing a bit of hunting, my top contenders would be:

Chrysiptera rex (midway through color change)
Neoglyphidodon melas (ditto)

I'm not seeing what you're seeing in either of those fish. Thanks for the response and the effort though.

I'm pretty sure these fish are as big as they're getting given that they're breeding.

Anyone else have a good lead?

They still look like juveniles, but i'd say that they look like Chrysiptera sinclairi .

They are C. rollandi--simply a color morph. Some individuals can be almost entirely black anteriorly, whereas younger specimens seem to have that anterior-most yellow band. Nice couple
