A juvenile coronetfish (Fistularia commersonii), distinguishable from a trumpetfish in being ventrally rather than laterally compressed, and also in that it swims with a very graceful, eel-like motion of the caudal fin. This one is only about a foot long, but they do get quite large when they mature...I've seen them almost as big as I am!
