Spotfin butterfly fish? Common in summer here, especially NJ inlets. I would imagine a colorful fish like that would attract alot of unwanted attention in NJ waters. I have seen them a bunch..first thought maybe someone was letting them go as pets cwm13.gif

I think that's it. The bands and the anal fins look right, the dorsal is close....kinda spikey in the front.

 

I read that they do get washed into the gulf and have been found as far N as Nova Scotia. I'm sure mine is just a juvi, it's barely an inch. Adults go up to 7" so I guess the thing can morph.
