Prretty sure this is a parrot fish, just can't seem to figure out which one.
Taken 4/15/11 at Delila Shallows, Cozumel in about 44 fsw.
initial phase princess parrotfish, you can tell by the dark tail margins.
Oops, sorry Pipefish. I seem to have posted right on top of you - I guess we were writing at the same time. Glad that I came to the same conclusion as you though.
Looks like a intermediate phase Princess Parrotfish. Notice the dark borders on the tail.
Thanks to both of you. It looks just like the pic in the book, I don't know how I missed it!
