Another juvenile I can't find in my books as either pictures or descriptions. My feeling was juvenile tomato grouper and I found one image of unknown reliability on the web supporting it but would appreciate confirmation.


I found at least two of these juveniles between the Twin Rocks reef and Balanoy muck regions (Anilao/Philippines) at 15-20m depth. They were hanging out on sandy flats with scattered small/medium size rocks, retreat under a rock when you approach but then reappear and stare right at you. Approximately 10-15cm
