    occys are usually less vibrant and have 11 dorsal fin spines instead of 10, as the percs do. also, percs have bright orange irises, occys have more of a greyish iris. the black markings that outline their white bars will also help distinguish one from the other, the percs have thick black outlines whereas the occys will have thin outlines if any.

    Going by the eyes I would say A. ocellaris but it's hard to tell for sure in the pic.

    A. ocellaris. Don't see them mis-barred very often.
