Cherry Grouper

Need a quick response....I'm in the store. I can't take my eyes off of the beautiful cherry grouper they have. Will he be alright with my undulated trigger and panther grouper already in the tank?

What size tank? Just curious, the panther groupers get huge.

Right now I have a 5" Panther grouper, 4 1-2" Undulated trigger, and about a 10" snowflake eel in my 55 gal tank. However, I own and am working on putting together my 225 gal tank. Then I will have major decisions to make on what to keep in it and then convert the 55 into something else. I read before impulsively buying the Cherry Grouper that you shouldn't have more than one grouper in a tank, but does this mean more than one "Panther" grouper cannot be in the same tank or is it any "Grouper". The Cherry and the Panther are totally different body shapes and colors which is the only reason I posed the question thinking maybe there is a small chance still out there that they would be ok together.

Agree, I wouldn't. The panther alone hits 28"

You did a good thing consulting with the forum prior to purchase anyways!! Impulse buys with large fish don't always end well

You know it!
I'm a freshwater guy too but I'd wait till you get everything on the 225 before you consider more fish.
