    Fish Id needed

    This is a new one by me, caught on the reefline in the lower Florida Keys. Never seen a trigger/filefish with this coloration before. Any ideas? Only thing I could find that even seemed close was a Unicorn Leatherjacket, I just honestly am stumped on this one.

    could be a unicorn but the picture of the fish is too far from the camera to tell for sure
    I have to admit I am a FISHAHOLIC.

    Don't know why it came out so small in photobucket. Tried to make the picture bigger.

    Didn't you submit this to the magazine? I think they already answered your question.
