Whats this fish?

I saw this fish in a lfs the other day, and course all the lables were wrong and nobody knew anything Well today when I went back in to see if i could find out what it was it was gone!
I will do my best to discribe it:
It kinda looked like a FW angelfish only the top and bottom fin were really long and went straight up. It was blackish with some other colours in there(can't really remember). It was really pretty and so like....fancy!
Its really buggin me now that I can't find out what its called, I only know of a few SW sites and they arn't very good to find out what fish is what.

thanks!
ashley

From your description, I'd guess either a batfish (the one Aaron has posted, Orbicularis batfish or a Platax pinnatus) or a French or Grey Angel.

Like this...keeping in mind an older specimen would be completely dark, with just the red edging..
