Odd Musselcracker

Check out this pic of a deformed , no, a reformed musselcracker I got recently - I only noticed the strange shape after getting the fish out of the cloudy water near the bottom.

There was a nice chiily thermocline of about 13 degrees on the bottom next to the reef where I took this fish.

My guess is a shark took a bite out of the fish and it healed up. I once saw a baardman that must have been speared before but it probably tore off as it had a deep narrow gash in its back but scales had reformed and all was in order.
