Awesome fish! How big do they get? I know some groupers can get quite large. Do you have anything else with it? I can't wait to get a bigger tank.

I love Groupers but they get very large (600 pounds) and have very large mouths. The best places to see them is in Diving magazines or while diving.

Groupers don't get 600 pounds. That's one species. You're talking about the largest grouper in the world the Goliath grouper. I have a honeycomb grouper that doesn't get more then 12" long.

This one should only get to 12" as well. I researched before getting it. It's housed with the dogface puffer, lion fish, two spot wrasse, vlamingi tang, and Niger trigger.

Bigger than an Oscar. With a much bigger mouth.
