That looks like a Small spotted dart, do you have another picture of this fish at a better angle from top down?

Sorry for the poor quality of the initial photo, it was taken at night.

It certainly looks like a small spotted darter, it has 2 distinctive spots on the body.

Yeah, it does look like it. I would love to use the live photo but the angle is a little off. Nice catch on this uncommon fish!

Looks interesting indeed, it's probably different from the usual black damselfish we catch. I will look try to look that up.
