TEXT/PLAIN (43 lines)

Thank you all for your help so far.  It appears that I should have
included a more thorough description of the fish with my request for help
with the identification.

Well, here it goes:
Dorsal elements: XII, 11

Anal elements:  III, 10  with the second spine very strong

Teeth:  incisors notched

Pectoral fin extends beyond anal opening when appressed.

Posterior nostril is slit-like.

Body depth/SL : 2.33

Lateral line scales: 43-45 (I admit that I am not very good at counting

Coloration:  6 broad dark black bars over length of body.  A faint bronze
stripe along ventral portion of the body.  A dark spot centered on the
origin of the lateral line.  Dorsal and anal fins dark.

I am not able to post a photo of this fish on the web but I hope that this
paints a picture that is a little more clear.

Any guesses?

Thanks again,
