Nice catches :thumbup:

The 2nd pic does look like a bristletooth to me, but the colouring on the lips is different, not sure.

1) some butterfly, not sure

2)
brown surgeon - acanthuras nigrofuscus
double check this one, the spot above the tail and orange dots around the mouth and dark lips, light to dark dorsal fin and the colour above the eye make me think its a brown tang, maybe a juv or he might be in shock.

3)
semi juv - pomacanthus semicirculatus
i think its a semi as its got 3 white stipes and the old women doesnt

It is the old woman in the last pic. I had an id on it some months ago and there was heated discussions on Sark regarding the difference.
