If it tore a groupers eyes out I don't think a clown could hold its own. Grouper are EXTREMELY aggressive. If it could do thy and did do that, imagine what it's going to do to a little clown.

I agree! That's why I got the grouper. It was even a little larger than the wrasse. Surprisingly, the grouper didn't try to fight with anything. Granted it was the last fish introduced to the aquarium, it didn't have its own territory to call its own.

I just don't understand why the wrasse doesn't fight with the foxface or the trigger. Neither are larger than the wrasse and the wrasse was put in long before either of them. I'm beginning to think the grouper was sick when I got it, even though it did eat.

It's a possibility. Or it was a wuss. LOL. The wrasse could just "be friends" with the others. My grouper, a honeycomb grouper, is unbelievably aggressive. GL with your choice and outcome!
