You are looking for identification of the long skinny fish in the center correct? Is there something else in front of it? Poss another fish?
Does it swim side to side like a small Iridescent Shark? Can you also tell us how long it is and how old it might be? Is it black and grey but has pink/red on it's belly?

yes the big one in center

about 4 inches long. silver and black. I looked up the iridescent shark and its similar except the spots on the head and reddish belly. Do you think it still could be one? not sure of age.

Nearly impossible to say without a much clearer picture.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)
