Interesting fish. Sadly the bad quality picture and lack of information makes it extremely difficult to identify. Considering that there are more than
21,000 (known) fish species in the ocean alone. To begin with it's most probably part of the so-called "ray-finned" fishes. If you take a look at
you'll get some idea of what the challenge
To identify a fish (with a blurry picture or even no picture) you'll need to know information such as total length, fork length (the fork of the
tail), snout length, fin rays, spinous (unsegmented) and soft (segmented), first (spinous) dorsal fin, second (soft) dorsal fin, pectoral fin, pelvic
(ventral) fin, anal fin and so on. (I think there are about 20 "need to know" details to do a good identification.) The more information, the more
likely you are to identify the fish.
Perhaps someone has seen this fish and can easily identify it. In my opinion it looks like the picture was taken of a fish in a fish tank...
