Aruba Fish - Boca Catalina

Can anyone help me identify this fish we spotted at Boca Catalina in Aruba? He was on bottom and looked more like a reptile. He was black or really dark. We saw over 20 different kinds and can identify them all except for this one. Thanks.

Hello Ruggie, your fish looks to us like a Yellowtail Parrotfish in the initial phase. Here is a link to some pictures.

Maybe A Lizardfish
by: Adam Thompson

Of the fish I've seen, it looks most similar to a lizardfish to me, specifically the Sand Diver. The fins and body shape look right, although it is a bit darker than the one's I've seen.
