If that pic is overexposed and the colors of the fish are off (really brown and white) I would say that it is a Harliquen Sweetlips. If im right, i hope you have him in a tank bigger than 300gal, cuz he will grow over 3 feet long.

he was a rescue, I realize he needs a huge tank and will most likely donate him to my LFS.

Thanks for the information, I am doing some research now.
