I did think at first it may be a adult red hook silver dollar but I dont believe it is because it seems to be large and the "hook" part seems to be too much infront of the stomach then normally on the red hook, so Im sorta at a lost. I do think it is closley related to the silver dollars though I just cant pinpoint it.

Is it saltwater or brackish? Looks like it could be a variety of Scatophagus (aka scat). General shape and the polka dot pattern is in line ... though the fines aren't like the one I've seen.My AC Fish Gallery:
