    Looks like a black grouper ... but I'm no expert.

    In one of the pics, the original?, I see bright/neon blue on parts of the fish. That would lead me to think more of the parrot variety. Again, no expert here. Just my 2 cents. peace. mellen

    Here's a link to the Video that Freddie took of a Midnight Parrot at Something Special earlier this year and posted in her trip report.

    A very good example, I'm sure I got a few ReefCam captures of it too, have been searching my archives all morning for it!! will post if I find it.
