Can you id this fish?

I have a 35 gal. hexagon saltwater tank. In it I have 1 lunare wrasse, 2 green chromis, 1 lemon damsel, 1 yellowtail blue damsel and 1 large yellow fish that I cannot identify. I've attached a couple of photos. Can anyone tell me what fish this is?

Looks like a blue damsel that's pale because it's stressed or it's a white damsel.

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea...

I've had this fish for at least 2 years. He looks the same as when I got him, only bigger. I don't think he's stressed because he's the biggest fish in the tank and kind of rules (except for my wrasse). Couldn't find any pictures that accurately matched. He does have blue/black fins on the bottom.

Here's a better picture of him. He's about 3 inches long.

The blue on the bottom is sand or something. I don't really know. I also have a lunar wrasse that seems to love that stuff on the bottom. My brother set this tank up a few years ago and I've just been maintaining/taking care it. The only fish I've ever lost were jumpers (I now have a cover). From pictures of anthia and damsels, he seems to look more like a combination of the two. Possible?

Also, do wrasse have sharp teeth?

cant be sure but resembles Paraglyphidodon melas, black damsel when young. Or it could be hybrid b/n two or more different species?
