We found this fish living in the sand with only it's eyes exposed. When we got it to come out, it was less than 12 inches in length and had long dorsal and anal fins running almost the length of its body. It was able to back itself down into the sand using its tail. We thought it could be related to a tilefish, but does not have the same behavior with swimming above its hole and then going back into the hole when frightened. Using the usual methods, we have not been able to identify this fish, so any help would be appreciated.
