It looks like a type of angel fish

Do not tell fish stories where the people know you; but particularly, don't tell them where they know the fish.

Yes, it's Orange Pyramid Butterfly. Because its unusual orange coloration, I was confused for a while. Thanks.
Tropical marine fishes are well known to have color variations, most likely due to their food source and salinity. Most pyramid are bright yellow but the one I showed intense orange and pretty!!
Have a nice Thanksgiving!!!!
