To be successful with the Blue Line Grouper a 200 gallon or larger well established aquarium is required due to its size and feeding habits. It is an extremely aggressive fish and may eat its tank mates as well as crustaceans.
Groupers are ambush predators and will spend much of their time hiding and watching for easy prey. Groupers should be housed in large aquariums with good filtration. Caution should be considered when adding this animal to a community tank as it will eat any fish or crustacean that may fit in it’s mouth.
