    On our shark feed, we had a large grouper show up with no interest in the chum, but only to eat smaller fish attracted to the chum. I haven't seen any grouper like this, and wondered if anyone know what species this was.

    I believe that's a Black Grouper. They come in more than one color phase. I've never seen a 'mixed phase' one like that. Here are a couple of my old black grouper photos:
