Can someone ID this fish for me please?

I just got back from vacation and saw a number of aquariums there. The one in this pic was in a mall and had no labels or descriptions on any of the fish. I'd never seen anything like this one and I'm moderately familiar with more common saltwater fish. I may not know the names of all of them, but I've certainly seen them at least once or twice. Not this guy though. I had no idea what this guy was. I know the one on top left is a lookdown. It's the one with the weird nose to the right center that I've never seen before.

The silver one is a Lookdown (Selene vorner), the one on the right is a Unicorn Tang (Naso unicornis) juvenile, I am not sure on the one in the middle, some sort of grouper (Miniatus Grouper (Caphalopholis miniata))?

That's what it looks like to me too.

I agree the large silver one is a lookdown fish, and I agree with the unicorn tang. I think the yellowish fish may be some sort of snapper, the yellow banded fish behind the unicorn looks like it could be a clown tang, and I can see two bannerfish in the background.

I think you are right on the snapper, jugding by the mouth. More of an angle than the groupers.

I knew the one was a look down. I'd just never seen a unicorn tang before I guess.
