    No one? Its supposed to be a lyretail but I have my doubts its not a mix of some sort based on the color pattern and form.

    looks to me like a female twin spot (bimaculatus anthias). Definitely not a Lyretail.

    FWIW, Bimaculatus are def prettier than the Lyretails, but the males get a little aggressive when they change. Hopefully yours stays mellow.

    Oh sorry, I thought you had a pair of females. Therefore, I was anticipating one of them changing to a male. If you like a "drama" free tank, I would just stick with the one. I have some great videos of my females locking mouths and spinning around in circles, fighting for dominance. I started with 4 females. Once the dominant one changed to a male, he killed one of the other females. So I sold the third one so he wouldn't kill her too. But he was VERY protective of the remaining female. He killed my Sunburst just for swimming too close to her. I finally had to sell them to someone who had a more aggressive tank with larger fish.
