Neptune Memorial Reef

I took this photo a couple of weeks ago on the Neptune Memorial reef just off Miami.  It is some kind of trigger fish or file fish.  ID help needed.

Looks like a gray triggerfish

Grey Trigger Fish

Yes, I thought it was a grey triggerfish from the description in my fish ID book but it looks nothing like the picture (pg395 in Reef Fish Identification).  I put it on my survey as 'Grey Triggerfosh' but was concerned as it is indicated as 'rare' i.e. shaded dark.  I wonder just how rare it really is?

Nick,

Gray Triggerfish are common in south florida, you got the identification right!!!

 

Thanks

Thanks for the confirmation, I figured if I had managed to see it then it couldn't be too rare.

 Nick.
