You may be correct.  But unless you determined that the "scaleless area between the eyes" is "surrounded by scales", this could just as easily be a Tidewater, Mottled, or Slender Mojarra (all of these are "open anteriorly).

I sent a bunch of photos of Mojarras that I caught last year to Univ. of FL experts and they couldn't ID them without looking at this feature.
