The Whitespotted Grouper, Epinephelus maculatus, is great for fish-only tanks. Groupers come from a family of fish known as Sea Bass. These fish have stout bodies with large mouths filled with more than one set of teeth. Groupers use powerful suction to engulf their prey by quickly opening their mouths. Their prey is swallowed whole instead of being chewed. For these predatory reasons, the Whitespotted Grouper should not be housed with smaller fish or inverts as those will quickly become prey. The Whitespotted Grouper can grow quite large so it should be housed in a large tank. They are carnivorous and will accept prepared or live foods.
