This photo (click on thumbnail) was taken mid-morning in Nov. 2008 about a half-mile off the west coast of Jamaica near Negril, depth was about 50 feet.

My guess would be trumpet fish or a small coronet fish, but I imagine you want something more specific.

Trumpetfish works for me. I looked up the species in my Caribbean Reef Fish book and the shape of the head and tail is right.

Thanks!
