The Giant Grouper (Epinephelus lanceolatus) is also known as the Brindlebass, Brown Spotted Cod, and the Bumblebee Grouper. It's the largest bony fish found along coral reefs. As juveniles, they have irregular black and yellow bumble bee markings on their bodies, while the adults are quite a bland coloration sporting green-gray to gray-brown with faint mottling and small black spots on the fins.
Like all Groupers, they are ambush predators and will spend much of their time hiding and watching for easy prey. They're found in rock crevices along the coral reefs of the Indo-Pacific. They like to feed on invertebrates and will eat any fish or invertebrates it can swallow. They are best kept in an aquarium with other fish its own size as smaller fish & invertebrates are guaranteed to be eaten. The Grouper is definitely a big eater. They prefer eating a wide variety of meaty seafood such as fish fillets, shrimp, clams, scallops and uncooked prawns.
