I saw this small fish (about 3-4") while snorkeling at Waterlemon Cay off St. John, USVI yesterday. I have never seen anything like it. I'm thinking maybe it's the juvenile of a larger fish. Anyone know what it is?

That fish is a Barred Hamlet. Here is a link to some more images of them. This fish is an adult size, about 3-5 inches. Nice Elkhorn Coral he is sheltering under too.
