Looks like a Sargassum fish. Camouflaged to blend in with seaweed and is an ambush predator.

Welcome to the forum!

do you think it could be a mix between a sargassum fish and puffer fish? Is that even possible?

Your image was a little blurry, so my ID may be off. But no, those species can't interbreed.

Thank you! I just wasn't sure 'cause I gogled images of a sorgassum fish and they look a little different.

Yes your right after looking at the first pic again the roundness of the belly looks more like a Frogfish :-)

Well after looking up Sargassum fish, frog fish, and scorpion fish. It looks just like a sargassum fish except for it's belly. It's belly reminds me of a puffer fish :( who knows. lol.
