Short Description:

Brown-orange fish with white spots  on side of body,Light orange tail and pectorial fins with white spots,Whiteish belly and pointed snout.This fish is to believe a hibird between Cheilodactylus pixi (Barred fingerfin) and Cheilodactylus fasciatus (Red fingers) 

I am not sure whether it is a hybrid. Some fish families hybridise easily but I don’t know whether fingerfins do.
