not sure about this ID, but that's the only one matching.
Based on:

  • two spots (eventually spikes) by the tail - points to unicornfish
  • yellowish mask
  • black dorsal fin
  • white to transparent end of tail (different to N. unicornis - please check last two photos as they swim together and are easy to distinguish)
