I think the parrotfish in the photo is the terminal phase (male) of Cetoscarus bicolor. The cute little white and orange juveniles often find their way into the aquarium trade, but few aquarists realise they grow 2.5 feet long!

I stand corrected. It is definitely a bicolor parrotfish.

A link to an original picture is here.
