Oh, and your fish resembles Vieja bifasciatus much more than Vieja synspila. Do a search on those names to find some pics of both and see if you don't agree.

tom-
It looks just like my fish which was also sold as a synspilum...mine is about 3" and just beginning to change colors too...whether or not they're really what we were told they were is another matter...I purchased mine from a pretty reputable LFS, so I'll belive them for now...
