    I caught this little fish (looks like a little kingfish) on a big jellyfish.

    Any idea what type of fish this is?

    Its now growing quite fast!

    Thanx

    I have absolutely no idea @tobiejvr. I tried looking for a resemblance in my fish books, but didn't find anything similar.
    I definitely doesnt look like a "reef" fish... More like some sort of game fish etc. & the yellow spots... Just confusing. @Lord_Blackadder might have an idea

    It still looks like a fry. The problem is it might change quite a bit before you'll be able to ID it successfully.
