White-Cheek Monocle Bream juvenile (Scolopsis Vosmeri) 1

I took this photo between 30-40m at Sail Rock. Although i can't say for certain, i'm quite confident this could be a juvenile White-Cheek Monocle Bream (Scolopsis Vosmeri) as it seems to have most of the distinguishing characteristics, although the white band behind the head has not yet developed.
