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.
This is a sleeping redband parrotfish - note the red line from the corner of the mouth. Many fish have different color patterns when resting.
I had wondered if it was a Parrotfish but the colors threw me off. Thanks!
