Can you ID this leaf mimicking fish? It was in 3 feet of water near a dock in St John USVI. It was in a group of leaves the same color as it floating with the tidal surge.
Sorry typo, Approximate size 3.5"
Looks like a juvenile Atlantic Spadefish. I've seen other pictures of juveniles with the pronounced foresdorsal fin.
