Is this a fila or caps? Currently, only 1.5 inches long. It was being sold as a dorada but is definitely not one with the spots and the body shape.

Fila and caps have spots.. hard to see if there are any small spots through the net, which would indicate fila. Don't see any big ones to indicate capa. Looks to me they have the ID correct

Dorado has wide "lips" and blunt end of the snout.

This looks like a filamentosum to me but the spots are hard to see indeed through the mesh.
