Juvenile Bass/Grouper?

Images: 

I saw 100's of these while diving the wrecks off the North Carolina coast.

They ranged in size from 2''- 4" and were found in nooks and crannies defending what

appeared to be a well defined territory.

I am thinking that they are juvenile Black Seabass, but am not sure.

Belted Sandfish

Looks like the Belted Sandfish. Nice Find.
