Spotted Christmas Day in about 20 - 30 feet of water
It appears to be a Sand Tilefish, Malacanthus plumieri. Weird spots on it! Here's a link to FishBase: Fishbase - Sand Tilefish
Yes it look like but the pic should be a bit clear....
I think both of you are correct, it is a sand tilefish with some funky spots.
