Please help me with IDs

I'm Paula Sgarlatta and I'm doing a PhD at UNSW under the supervision of Professors Iain Suthers and Adriana Vergés.
Part of my project involves a lot of diving and shooting fish videos. I'm now analyzing those videos. The tricky part is that I need to identify fish species from sites as far apart as Lizard Island, Qld and Batemans Bay, NSW. So, I thought I would try to enlist some help from the amazing Australasian Fishes Project community.
Some of the videos are blurry and it's difficult to ID the species from screenshots. Mark kindly suggested uploading the videos to YouTube for you to see the species properly and help me with the IDs.
So, if you have a moment, please pop over to the 'Fish ID - Paula' playlist on the Australasian Fishes Project YouTube channel, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0_V5pjo4kdvwkSq9RY68gw, and take a look.
For more information you can contact me via iNaturalist at @paula_sgarlatta or via email, paula.sgarlatta@gmail.com.
Thank you!

Australasian Fishes Project observations used in Redmap report cards

As many of you know, Redmap the Range Extension and Mapping Project, collects observations of many out-of-range marine organisms. Redmap has just released report cards for Australia, NSW, Tasmania and WA. View them at https://www.redmap.org.au/article/report-card/
The data set behind the report cards included records from Redmap, supplemented by thousands of records from the Australasian Fishes Project and Reef Life Survey (https://reeflifesurvey.com/)
I thought you might like to know that this is yet another scientific endeavour that has utilized observations uploaded by Australasian Fishes Project members.
Thank you as always for the time and effort you put into the project.

Australasian Fishes Project YouTube channel

One of the project rules of the Australasian Fishes Project states that valid observations must include at least one still image. As you know, iNaturalist does not allow videos to be uploaded (GIF files are permitted). To get around this issue, way back in February 2017 I created an Australasian Fishes Project YouTube channel.
If you have a video of a fish that supplements your observation in iNaturalist, feel free to contact me and I'll give you permission to upload your video to the Australasian Fishes Project YouTube channel and add a link back to the relevant observation in iNaturalist.
So far, videos have been uploaded by @scubalynne, @ianbanks, @paula_sgarlatta, @mikejonesdive to name a few.
