It's a Trigger. The juvenile colors are really throwing me off though. Maybe a juvenile Starry Triggerfish (Abalistes stellatus)?

A juvenile Pseudobalistes fuscus, or Bluelined Trigger. They're very temperamental when they get large, and they do get large. They are tropical species, and I believe they come out of the Red Sea. They look quite different as adults.
