Taken near Puerto Vallarta...no clue? Small, about 1" across...

Always seen in pairs like this, one large one small.

Wrong ocean. Looked like a juvenile Highhat to me. There's apparently one in this area called a Gungo highhat. Fishbase only has an image of an adult. Scientific name, Pareques viola.
