"Take-Off"

A Jelly in an aquarium (not a wild creature).
(When I was a kid we called them Jelly-fish, but I'm slowly getting used to this new term.)

I look forward to your images.

Cheers,
David

Just about the only shot of an underwater creature I have (also in an aquarium).

Looks like a triggerfish of some kind.

I don't think it is a triggerfish...
Facial markings look like a Maori Wrasse (or Humphead wrasse/napoleon wrasse/napoleon maori wrasse - or any combination of these :) )
I can't see a prominent hump and this looks a lot smaller than the typical adult maori wrasse... perhaps a juvenile one?  Or I could be completely wrong and it may be a triggerfish - I haven't looked at fish ID books in a while.

Where did you see the fish? (And very nice photo by the way)

Yep.  That's definitely a juvenile.  They tend to get a bit greener and the bump becomes more prominent as they get older.  I've spent many dives feeding one in the local aquarium.
