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.
