Snorkeling with Red Fish - Makena, Maui

Unidentified Swimming Objects!

During a snorkel near Maluaka Beach in Makena, we were joined by a small school of medium-sized red fish with black eyes and a single black streak in their fan tails. Evidently they thought we were pretty interesting because they followed us closely wherever we went for about fifteen minutes. I have never seen this species before or since, and I can't find it in our reef fish identification books. If anyone out there recognizes this fish and knows its name, I'd really appreciate it if you'd share this with me.
