I would appreciate help in identifying these five species.
Pic # 1 (the 3 red and blue in the back) blackbar Soldierfish. (yellow in front) French Grunt.
Pic # 2 (purple) Blackcap basslet
Pic # 3 (with the white dots) Bermuda Chub
Pic # 4 masked or glass Gobies
Pic # 5 A damselfish of some sort if i had to guess i would guess threespot because of overall yellow color.
these are best guesses (and I think they are very good) because the pictures are rather small for better ID detail.
1 Blackbar soldierfish and French Grunt
2 Blackcap Basslet
3 Yellowtail Damselfish, not fully adult
4 Bridled Goby
5 Longfin Damselfish juvenile
I agree 100% with livi120, including the three spot damselfish. The olive-yellow edging on the eye is quite characteristic.
