Thank you badger! That is it,although I can't find anywhere that sells them. Not that it matters but it was not marked and I was charged for a basslet. Was just curious. Thank you though

Glad I could help. It helps to have a wife whom likes to snorkel, take pictures, and then have to identify all the fish we have seen. A little game that we play to help remember our ocean vacations. Nice fish!

Well with a little more research I have found that it is a royal pencil wrasse!

The petco up north. They had it marked as a chalked basslet. He is very interesting. I was afraid the one of my nems got him lastnight. The Nem was closed up and the fish was nowhere to be found. After I found some more info on them, they burrow to sleep at night. My white light had just gone off when I notice the Nem closed and fish missing. This morning about 20 seconds after the whites came on, there he came from under the sand...
