ID me!

The folks over at Pacific Island Aquatics have been getting some really gnarly fish in lately including a pair of Mauritus Flasher Wrasses, a True Personifier Angel and even a Gem Tang, perhaps the most sought after surgeonfish on the planet.

It was just reported that they captured a Hawaiian fish and can't quite identify what species it is. Based on the photo, we can observe that it has the mouth of a grouper and the scales and form of a cardinal, but for all we know it could be neither. Do you have any guess as to what it is? Be sure to leave your comments below!
