Coney GALLERY

Cephalopholis fulva

The Coney is a member of the Sea Bass/ Grouper family. Several of their color variations make them very easy to recognize.  They can be reddish brown to yellow, or red or brown on top, white on the bottom, dark with yellowish sides or a mottled phase, but always with small contrasting color spots. They have an unique lower lip with two to four black dots. (see  juvenile photos ) Their anal fins and tail fins have a blue edging on them.
