Eastern Blue Devil Fish Paraplesiops bleekeri

A quite secretive fish it hangs around in caves and under overhangs during the day.  A protected species due to collection for aquariums, they are in low density and can be hard to find.  This one was up the back of a small cave about 3-4m in from the wall, couldn't see without my focusing light.  It is about 200mm or so long.
