that looks like alot of gold spilos i've seen. if it is, it's a beautiful specimen. if it somehow turns out to be a rhom, then really beautiful specimen.

if you look closely it has an unjury almost like a bite mark on its chest area near the pectoral fins........ so i have been adding aquarium salt to try and help heal him up

that wound will heal up within a week if he's healthy. salt and a water change and a bite to eat and he'll be sound as a pound. i think he's going to be a real looker once the wound and the fins are 100%.

I wouldn't venture a guess on the fish. But I'm having doubts it is an S. spilopleura. Some of the features common (ie; humeral spot and midline band) are not apparent. Looks more like S. maculatus. Try for a better photo.
