could be a few things, white seam, L183 or similar. Do you know if the white fin tips will fade as he grows?

well he was sold to me as a 183 so they hopefully will not:-)

I also was able to get a few of them to sit still long enough to count 9 dorsal rays which I' 've read is the easiest way to tell them apart from other anxieties.
