Probably very common, but I could not find this color combination.  Any thoughts?

They look like Squirrelfish, Holocentridae, but I can't narrow that down yet.

 

Cheers,

Jim.

 

PS- Time of day? Night-time colouration?

Jim, Mike, and Jim,

Many thanks.  I also thought at first they were fusiliers (sort of like attached) but could find no fusiliers with bars.  Maybe the bars show up only at night.  The Flores pair was shot to 7:15 p.m.
