Unknown Fish on the Great Barrier Reef

Can anyone identify this fish I saw on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia? It's not the greatest photo, but I've been unable to match it to anything.

Thanks!

Hello Dave, we actually know that one! That is a Slingjaw Wrasse, Epibulus insidiator.

Thank you Nicole and Galen, for the I.D. There are some videos online of this fish "slinging" its jaw forward to eat. Amazing!
