    Looks like a lizardfish to me...
    3/4 of the Earth are covered by water and 1/4 by land. Clearly God intended us to spend 3 times as much time fishing and diving than mowing the lawn. - Wiz

    Yes it does. Thank you all. I couldn't find it in any of my fish id sites. It was really bugging me.

    The Paul Humann Caribbean Fish ID book is fabulous and you really should buy it. There are so many fish that you don't realize you have seen until you start looking through the book. It really does make your diving more exciting knowing what you are looking for or looking at.

    Seconded about the Humann book.. But I recommend going the extra mile and getting The Reef Set by Humann. AWESOME SET. It consists of Reef Fish, Reef Creatures, and Reef Corals. Invaluable! Kind of pricey for all three, but so worth it!

    There's also Reef Fish Behavior by Ned Deloach, photographed by Paul Humann
    With the privilege of diving, comes the responsibility of conservation.

    would this be correct?

    I believe it is a sharptail eel but I'm not sure.

    Really want to get good at IDing medium and smaller reef fish... get a saltwater aquarium and really get into it. Granted it costs a small fortune (making scuba gear look down right cheap), but it does work... or get a really good book like the one mentioned above.

    I actually started working on a fish ID app where you select shape, behavior, size, markings, etc but got bored and never finished it. Eh, maybe one day.
