BigEye usually has a black spot near the top of the gill plate. I do not see it in the photo so good chance they are GT but the one in front appears long and dark which is charactristics of BigEye. Color on GT when larger is much nicer. Good choice.

K kendragon ahh I see. So if no black spot, chances are gt then? That being said, they do have a different body shape :s

BigEye = Long body, dark finnage, black spot on gill plate (front of photo).
Giant Trevally (GT) = Round body, yellowish color and fin (back of photo).

Ahh okay, thanks for the help!
Wanted to ask though, is the black spot on the gill plate very apparent on juveniles? The ones I got seem to have a black spot when they were stressed from the drive home, but once settled in, they lost that trait?
