As common as they are, I'd agree. Could also be a juvenile Night Sergeant. Cool finds.
Yes on Permit.

Gobies look like Bathygobius sp., Frillfin Goby or a related species.

Check this paper out on frillfin species - may help you out. they kind of look like B. lacertus, but they can be tricky
I was just in the same area (Cozumel) and caught this one I identified as B. lacertus
