The Panther Grouper, Polka Dot Grouper, or Barramundi Cod will reach 20 inches in length in the wild! This grouper is suitable for very large aquariums only!
This is a predatory fish that should be fed meaty foods and live fish. Don't keep the Panther Grouper, Polka Dot Grouper, or Barramundi Cod with smaller fish like damsels and small clowns unless they are intended as a meal!

Video of a juvenile Panther Grouper in captivity.
Often purchased as an adorable 2" baby, the Panther Grouper can grow 2" per month, so putting them in a 180 gallon tank is best. They swim around nose down with their big pectoral fins constantly wiggling and moving, which is one of their endearing qualities. They learn who their owner is and will perform for food! This little guy will grow to 27" in the wild, but closer to 20" in captivity and will only become a threat to any fish or crustacean that can fit into their mouth! Add them as the last member of the tank as juveniles.

The gentlemen in the video refers to the Panther Grouper as a Barramundi Cod, and acknowledges they are a protected fish and will be letting it go. The great thing about this video is that it gives the aquarist a real VISUAL of how big these fish will get. The size of the mouth is also an indication of proper tank mates! Housing them in a 250 gallon tank is widely suggested, though older literature says 180 gallons. These groupers seem to swim more than others, which would explain the need for a large tank. They are smart fish and get to know their owners!
