I’m kicking myself for not asking while I was at the store but.. does anybody know what kind of fish this is? It has bright purple lips, fins, and rings around its eyes. I’ve tried googling the description (in various terms) and haven’t found anything. I can always call the store in the morning but I thought I’d check here too :)

As others have said, Centropyge flavissimus. One of the dwarf angels that stay around 4”, so they won’t get anywhere near the size some of the larger angels get. And they’re pretty easy to care for, they tend to eat prepared/frozen right off the bat.
