Kind of weird-- supposedly the rear stripe is supposed to be narrow, but it looks quite wide on these. They have white tails unlike Clark's, though.

I think this one has a parasitic passenger! The dark oval behind its eye disrupting the stripes isn't supposed to be part of the pattern, and it looks like it has shiny little eyes on its front.

Description from Wikipedia

The Pomacentridae are a family of perciform fish, comprising the damselfishes and clownfishes. They are primarily marine, while a few species inhabit freshwater and brackish environments (e.g., Neopomacentrus aquadulcis, N. taeniurus, Pomacentrus taeniometopon, Stegastes otophorus). They are noted for their hardy constitutions and territoriality. Many are brightly colored, so they are popular in aquaria.

No range data available.
