Think its a parrotfish? (Crimson Banded Wrasse. Male)



First post on here. Caught this one off the rocks at south whale. At first thought it was a parrotfish but cant seem to get any confirmation on the species. Some clarification would be great.

Exactly as Blackfish had said. 

People often mistakenly call wrasses as parrotfishes (people think that most likely due to the gaudy colouring of males of the species). We don't really have members of the parrotfishes in the Sydney region - may get some strays during the summer months that get washed down via the East Australian Current from the tropics, but most tropicals tend to not survive our temperate waters beyond autumn or so (except Lionfishes).
