Can you ID this fish

On saturaday I dived off Noordhoek and found these fish under an overhang in 18 at a site called Mark 4 - never seen them before.



The big eye, slanting mouth and white marking on the tail are distinguishing characteristics. Their length is about 75 -100 mm. These may well be juveniles that have not take on adult charactersitcs.

Here is a clip of these fish:





If you recognise the fellows let me know on freedive@freedive.co.za


Comment added 24 May - Terence Bellingan suggested: Centroberyx spinosus, short alfonsino  - I agree very close.
