    Does anyone know what fish this is? It was found about 50 feet deep in Cozumel at the base of a sponge near a coral banded shrimp. It was rather shy preferring to hide in the recesses.

    From the line on the forehead going through the lips it looks like it could be a graysby juvenile.

    Any options other than a graysby juvenile?

    The line is fairly distinctive and obvious in the picture. What other fish has this marking?

    Sorry, this is the only photo I have and it did not come out of this hole while I was around.

    A more rounded tail would be confirmation. I say juvenile graysby.
