Miniatus Grouper

Miniatus Grouper

The Miniatus Grouper is a species that initially spends most of its time hiding. However, as time passes, this species will greedily eat all meaty food it can get a hold of and spend most of its time out in the open. The Miniatus Grouper does best as the only of its family, as Groupers tend to fight amongst each other. Prone to eating ornamental crustaceans, the Miniatus Grouper is not a preferred candidate for a reef tank. Not only will the Grouper eat crabs and shrimp, it will also eat any fish that can fit in its mouth, including small wrasses and dottybacks. As with other Groupers, they grow rapidly and require very efficient filtration.
