We identified this fish by tracking down the juvenile form, which we had seen quite often when diving around Koh Phangan. Big thanks to Barry Russell who put us right on 4 adults that we had misidentified as Scolopsis ghanam.
I think one of the fish pictured (The mottled one with the electric blue stripe by the eye) is the Rainbow Monocled Bream (Scolopsis Monogramma)
Thanks Corey – the photo is now in “other monocle bream” – it was taken on a night dive many years ago with a lesser camera, which might explain the duller colouration.
