Which? Hind, Grouper, Mutton Hamlet? Juvenile?



This was taken in USVI. Fish was hiding next to a sponge in 10 feet of water.

I'm sure it's not a Rock Hind, or Red Hind, not a Black Grouper or Yellow. Is it possible a Mutton Hamlet or Juvenile Goliath?

What do you think?



Mutton Hamlet

Nice find! tThat is the seldom seen Mutton Hamlet (Alphestes afer). Much more populous in the eastern Pacific...
