    Thanks, I have seen them before, not rare but diffidently obscure.

    I believe it's a species of sweetlips? It gets pretty big and LA says it can eat small fish. I'm assuming it will eat the hermits clean up crew. High hats are cool looking though.

    They're a type of drum, similar to red and black drums for those who sport fish. Obviously won't get as big as a red or black but they get big relative to our fish tanks.
