My friend has a panther grouper and it is about 2 and a half feet. It's in a 500 gallon tank. They get massive. The smallest of the groupers IMO is the blue line. They still need at least a 125 though

I have raised 3 panthers to almost 1ft each, for one to get 2 ft must have took quite a long time, mine took 2 years to reach 8 inches, but yes if one were to reach 2 feet i would would require a very large tank. IMO if i had a fish that reached even 1.5 feet i would probably adopt to to someone else, there is no need to have a 200g tank with one fish, what a waste of space, i personally like a lot of variety in my tank so i could not sacrifice that much space for one single fish.

Ha ya he has had him for a very long time the coolest thing is when he goes to the bottom and flares his gills and opens his mouth and the 15 cleaner shrimp come running! It's amazing to watch. Abd he never eats them

Does he have antithetical fish other than the grouper? How do the shrimp survive?
