It's a type of cardinalfish called Pseudamia amblyuropterus (common name Pearljaw cardinalfish).

Oops, that should be P. amblyuroptera (not amblyuropterus). And "White-jawed cardinalfish" seems to be a commonly used name as well.

No idea on value. They are mostly found around mangroves, so don't get imported all that often. If you do a search on the various names (common and scientific) you might find if listed for sale somewhere.
