Actually, upon further research, we may have a match:
Animal Library: Fish: Striped / Sankey's Dottyback

Sankey's Dottyback.

Keep in mind, some basic color pattern changes occur between male / female species and as fish mature from juveniles to adult.

Isn't there such a thing as a "false" cleaner wrasse which is actually parasitic?

29 Gallon Reef 20G FW lake tank
2 Ocellaris clownfish 2 Pumpkinseed sunfish
1 Sixline wrasse A lot of driftwood
1 Peppermint shrimp A lot of foliage
1 Longspine urchin Penguin 330 power filter
Various soft corals, LPS, & SPS.

In progress: Arduino based aquarium controller

Thanks to me, my family lives in a zoo. Could the always increasing number of fish, 3 Snails, 9 Shrimp, 3 Caudates, Dog, Cat, and 2 Birds POSSIBLY have ANYTHING to do with it?

OK i justlooked it up for ya. I think you have a Gosline's Fangblenny, AKA Sabertooth Fangblenny, Plagiostremus goslinei
and they feed on the skin, flesh, scales, and fins of larger fish.

we see something identical on our collecting trips called a striped fang blennie.

They have a bit of a nasty bite to them,they have drawn blood on me before.

i have kept them before and with good feeding,they were no trouble.
