I am a bit confused with the ID of these two fish. Being from Nth Qld I have always called the first fish a Blubberlip bream. The second picture shows what I think is a yellow spotted Blubberlip. My question is are these the same fish? Or is it yet another instance of names getting mixed up. Or have I got them both wrong?

Cheers Scotty

I looked up Grant's Guide to Fishes 1982 edition.

Both fish appear to be "SWEETLIPS". The first fish is Brown Morwong/Blubber-Lip Bream/Brown Sweetlips Plectorhynchus nigris Page 381.

The second fish appears to be a Morwong or Painted Sweetlips "Plectorhynchus pictus" Other names are Blackall; Mowong; Slate Bream; Thicklip Bream Page 384.

Regards

Ian
