    I'm going with a five lined cardinal fish AKA cheilodipterus quinquelineatus. According to my book they can prey on small inverts and fish but only reach 12cm in size

    When you get the Scientific Name...then look it up and you will get all the Info you need regarding Reefsafe/care of it...that is if it's a Wrasse...I'm still stunned at what some of these Fishes "turn out" when they are "adult"..:lol:
