  1. True, but I cannot find it in any of my books and Fishbase are quite good about keeping up to date, which is why I thought of Neoglyphidodon melas - Bowtie damselfish because the picture I have is very similar but I really have no idea! But anything is possible because many fish get moved around in the ballast of ships, hence the Lionfish in the Caribbean!

    I've got a catalogue of fish species found in the Maldives and also published there which I bought right there - Ch.verater is included. Besides, fishbase can't know everything about every fish.

  3. Looking at fish base they seem to think this is only found in the Hawaiian and Johnston islands, what do you think are they wrong?

    Chromis verater is typical of the Maldives which is relatively a short way from Thailand.

  5. Chromis verater only seems to be from the Eastern Central Pacific, this was taken in Thailand, could it be Neoglyphidodon melas - Bowtie damselfish?
