What kind of Fish is this?

Ok so my uncle gave me this saltwater fish that I have no clue what it is. Can someone ID this fish for me? I currently have him in a quarantine tank to make sure he wont infect my other fish.

yup

yeah pretty much...unless you have a refugium full of mother colonies of corals..or a good supply of live foods that he hopefully accepts.you may be out of luck. some of the file fish will accept aptasia but thatis a whole other ball game raising the little pests.
