That may be a Humphead Wrasse (see wikipedia for another photo).
that’s a pilot fish
I’m a chemist/hobbyist programmer not marine biologist but I remember seeing something like this at an aquarium. It was a wrasse, so I looked that up and found this one:
The description especially sounds promising… So why do you ask?

Some sort of Lantern’s Fish perhaps?
In South Africa we call that a Red Stumpnose, assuming the orangey/yellow stripes were actually bright red in real-life
