Different fish, the Blue Bone

Different fish, the Blue Bone is actually a Blackspot Tuskfish. Both definitely taste very good.

Bluebone or Baldie ???

Both have a bald chin but the Black spot tuskfish (choerodon schoenleinii) has a blue tail and fins and the Baldchin Groper (choerodon rubescens) has orange fins and tail , And both taste great.. Especially the cheeks.

Different species of the same family, even genera i think, so basically they are the same.
