Looks like a S. Manueli. Its kinda small. Either that, or a spilocf, however I think those markings look like manueli to me.

(I could be wrong though)

everyone I have seen has the humeral spot, but maybe just not at that age.
Thats what I was thinking as well. Hopefully george can lend his opinion.

I don't know what it is, but it does not look to me like it's a manueli.

Besides the lack of a humeral spot (which might be due to stress or water conditions), the eyes do not seem large enough in proportion to the head.

Hope Hareball doesn't mind... Here's a pic of his 3" manueli when he owned it:

Also notice the difference in body shape and head profile. IMO, It looks very different compared to your's.

Sorry, it's not...besides of the lack of the distinctive black humeral vertical spot and reddish eyes S.manueli have hyaline fins when youngsters while yours have a reddish anal fin...so IMO you have another specie...!
