What is this fish?

Hey all, I was looking up American Flag Fish on google, and I came across this fish. I know it's saltwater, because on one of the pictures it was with a SquirrelFish. And Live Rock was with it in another one. If anyone knows its name or it's care, can you share? I'm on vacation right now, so I can only provide a link. When I get back on Sunday night, I could provide an actual picture. Thanks!

It can live in slightly brackish water so could well have been in with live rock.

No, it isn't Jordenalla floridae, this fish isn't called that. Just came up with that search. I'm quite positive it's saltwater. Try copy and pasting this, it worked for me.

Edit: Forgot to mention, this fish looks completely different from Jordanella Floridae.

Red Flag Grouper?

Those are the only ones I can think of that vaguely resemble the American Flag, this is from months of searching for fish for potential stock lists.

Hmm, that isn't it......it's about the size of a Squirrlefish, if that helps. Thats really all I got from the picture. The most common squirrelfish, forgot its name. The light red one.
