    ID this fish?

    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!

    Good judgment comes from experience.
    Experience comes from bad judgment.

    A series of unrecognized mistakes does not constitute experience.

    I'm a NMOF and proud of it.
