In one of the pics, the original?, I see bright/neon blue on parts of the fish. That would lead me to think more of the parrot variety. Again, no expert here. Just my 2 cents. peace. mellen

Here's a link to the Video (http://www.bonairetalk.com/forums/showthread.php?71899-MF-and-Ppoo-go-to-Bon-%29&p=413882#post413882) that Freddie took of a Midnight Parrot at Something Special earlier this year and posted in her trip report.

A very good example, I'm sure I got a few ReefCam captures of it too, have been searching my archives all morning for it!! :hummm: will post if I find it.

Great video. The Midnight is my most favorite of the Parrotfishes.
