Hi,

I recently took this image of a sickle fin lemon shark in Fiji but would love to know the ID of the yellow and black striped fish accompanying it. Does anyone have a clue? I've done extensive google image searches and looked it heaps of fish ID charts but no conclusive joy. I think it might be a yellow striped sea bream? but I can't confirm, any help appreciated.

Cheers Matt

Juvenile golden trevally - Gnathanodon speciosus
I'm no good with slugs, but not so bad with fish
