Hind Identification :moon:

please let me know if this thread has already been created.

I realize that Hinds, Coney's, and Graysby's are regulated the same, I would just like to know the difference (if anyone actually knows) between them all.

Below is what I have concluded based on searching google for 30 minutes. I'd love to actually know instead of just believing the internet.

- Coney's are two toned (dark on lateral top half of body, light on lower half).

- Red Hinds are similar to Rock Hinds just a lot more red.

- I cannot tell the difference between Graysby's and Rock hinds. It seems like they both have the black or white spots on the upper back and the same overall pattern.

- Speckled Hind aka Calico Grouper aka Strawberry grouper doesn't have these spots on it's back.

Am I at all close?

Re: Hind Identification :moon:

Just bumped into this thread and I have always wondered the same thing. I thought they were all stawberry grouper till a few weeks ago, I also heard they all have ciguatious poison or the same type poison barracudas have.
