Now that you mention it, yeah, it does have the same front face look to him. I'm pretty sure it's some kind of goby though, it's perched quite nicely and is kinda slender and long. he already ate some flake food so not sure if that matters.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Not sure about the hawkfish idea. It has the face but it's more thin. Hawkfish seem more plump IMO.

I think it may be a type of prawn goby.

100% a redspotted sandperch, Parapercis schauinslandii. I have a picture of it in a Bourneman book right next to me. He does get 5.1" long max by the way. May want to move him to the 125. This book, which told me 20 gallons for a longnosed hawkfish (pah!) says 55 for the sandperch.

I win!

WOOHOO! I know what I bought now.

Thank you sooo much!!

I'll have to see how fast he grows, he's pretty tiny still. I just ggogles the sandperch and came up with 3.5 inches so I'm gonna go read some more.

Thanks again!
