Great Blenny (?).
Facial markings and horns are super, and the orange background helps as well.

IMHO what can be done to make this even better? Hopefully this fish is as common as the Secretary Blennies are around here, so you can be selective about your subject. The white coral/rock in the bottom right foreground really distracts the viewer. Can you process it out? (It may also be casting a shadow on the fish's face.)
Better yet since you seem to get in the water a lot, look for this fish in the "perfect" hole. You take excellent photos so now really search out the best setting. This fish may be common to you but not the viewer and it has cool markings. When you find one really analyze the area around the subject, free of bleached coral, algae etc.
Will be looking for the next one!
