Fish ID please


Could someone please ID this Caribbean fish.  I was told it is pretty common, yet could not ID from any book.

Thank you.

Re: Fish ID Please

It's hard to tell for sure from the picture, but it looks to me like a juvenile or initial phase redband parrotfish.  They are very variable in coloration and so are hard to ID because the guidebook pictures don't often look like the ones in the field.  They are pretty common.
