You cant change their nature. You'll need to get rid of him.

Panthers are considered "peaceful"

you could get the panther out for a couple of days then try re introducing him to the tank... that way the panther is now the newcomer to the tank and hopefully it'll stop attacking....

If that still fails then take him back

Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Panther Grouper

Groupers are not peaceful. They are very aggressive. Esp. The panther grouper.

Btw they need a 300 gallon tank.

Thats a story for another day. The point is that these are aggressive fish and you cant change nature. They will harass your other fish.

Lets back up for a sec. I've seen hundreds of panthers kept with other fish. Even one at my lfs has one with a flame angel that's 1/5th it's size. I've also kept one with a clown fish while be was young. He cannot fit any of these fish in its mouth. Does anyone have any suggestions that would help besides the ones alrdy given

Idlook for tank mates that could stand up to the grouper. Honestly, removing the grouper and letting the new fish settle in is what I would advise. How big is he?
