Another Roatan fish mystery


Again on the night dive in Roatan we saw this fish and are unable to identify it.  I cannot find this fish in my fish identification resource book.  Looks to be about 6 inches long.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Redband Parrotfish

This is a sleeping redband parrotfish - note the red line from the corner of the mouth.  Many fish have different color patterns when resting.

That does seem right.

I had wondered if it was a Parrotfish but the colors threw me off.  Thanks!
