Probably rhom, but it appears the spots near the tail may be barlike which would lead me to say it is an altuvei.

Can anyone photoshop that pic to get a better look at the spotting pattern?

I looked at it, and its hard to see but from what I was able to see there is no barring.

Thanks Sean.

It appears all signs so far point to S. rhombeus.

i dont know why none of my pics are showing up- yes ive had him since he was the size of a quarter, its just a estimate being 2 yrs- may have been close to three- I kinda fooled you guys- this fish was identified a couple times about a year ago on here as compressus or altuveii- But his bars are almost all gone now and led me to think he was a rhom- I had him in a 30g long for the past 6 months but he just always stays in one spot so i put him back in the 20g- yes he is about 7", i hope he is a rhom - i will take better pics soon
