Fish ID help needed!

Heya,
I was at a Rainforest Cafe very soon after getting a new, spiffy camera, and started taking pictures of the aquarium. Not thinking much of it, I didn't bother to look at the plaques set up around the store to figure out what fish I was photographing. Now, though, I'm very interested in what type of fish this is and sincerely beg for your help.

My computer crashed, so the closest I have to the picture is my slightly edited, artistic rendition of it on DeviantART.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here's the link: http://rockinbassist73.deviantart.co...ioned-66945889

Thanks so much!

Take pride in what you do, for it is a reflection of who you are.

Hi here is what i found maybe this can help you. The fish in your picture is most likely a "racoon butterfly fish". I have a link here that is really identical to the fish you have a picture of. Here it is:
