This is a soapfish grouper, that ranges between 4-8 inches, though most are around 4 inches. It’s very thin looking and unlike a lot of other groupers it does move around looking for food. It’s an aggressive hunter and will eat small fish and invertebrates, so you need to be careful when you place one of these in your reef tank.
