My local LFS had this guy for sale as a leaffish, which I know it isn't.  But I can't find anything similar to it online.  He figured out what mysis were pretty quickly and has moved right in,  but I would love to know what he (or she) is, any help would be greatly appreciated

Some sort of waspfish. What species, I'm not exactly sure.

Thanks for the help,  I've looked everywhere to find a pic of one similar, but haven't found one yet.  I do, however, have a cockatoo waspfish as well and their behaviour and appearance is very similar so waspfish makes sense.

His colour has gotten more intense as he has settled in.  He's very cryptic in the macroalgae, and hides most of the day, but he is very active after lights out and when there is food in the water:)
