Spotting

Description:

the blackish and white fish just above the hard coral in the photo.

Habitat:

65 feet deep, coast line corals, not hiding but seemed to be hunting when I startled it. it came straight at me then bolted.

Notes:

very fast, aggressive, 5-6 inches long, many outer fins/wings/flaps. not a lion fish that I know of.

The fish directly above the coral, my guess would be a juvenile Rockmover Wrasse. Check the reference above.
