    $\begingroup$ I don't think this is right. The asker's fish has a brown tail, no golden spot/stripe on its back and very different "fluoro" markings. The asker's fish was caught in a river but yours lives in the sea. $\endgroup$ Apr 5, 2019 at 19:37
  • $\begingroup$ @DavidRicherby maybe if the asker added many pictures from different sides, I can see the blue color under the fish eyes which says everything .. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ There's only one photo available and it already shows significant differences from your suggestion. Having more photographs of the unknown fish can't make it look more like a neon velvet damselfish. $\endgroup$ Apr 5, 2019 at 20:30
