Ok, so, I found three more that I couldn't positively ID.
I did pretty well with the fish, the inverts were a little more difficult. I might get up the courage to post some of those here as well.
1. Yellowtail Snapper. Looks like a big one.
2. You found a napping Parrotfish. It's camouflaging itself to hide from predators and, more importantly, to drive fish-watchers crazy. Positive ID from this view is probably impossible, but if I had to guess I would say Redband Parrotfish.
3. Looks like a juvenile Stoplight Parrotfish.
Agree with 1 and 3. And, agree with Louis on 2 that it is a parrot fish in resting camouflage and hard to ID beyond that. I was just wondering if it may be Bucktooth due to Habitat and Behaviour and the fact that this guy looks small based on the size of those feather duster worms.
Wow! Thanks for the help!
