Im thinking either a snapper or grunt but cant seem to find anything that looks like it on the 'net. Its body is silver and the stripes are blue(four of them).
Thanks for the reply..

I agree, I think its the blue striped snapper as well. The only difference is the coloration, my snapper is more white bodied with a slight tinge of yellow on the fins and body. It may be stressed out and thats why its faded.
