The Miniatus Grouper, Coral Trout, Coral Rock Cod, or Jewel Bass is a very strikingly beautiful fish! They have a flamboyant red color with white and blue dots. A juvenile can be yellow with the blue spots being faint and pale.
This fish ranges from the Red Sea to the mid-Pacific living in coral reefs looking for smaller fish upon which to dine. The Miniatus Grouper, Coral Trout, Coral Rock Cod, or Jewel Bass reach 18 inches in the wild and are therefore only suitable for large aquariums, (at least 150 gallons).
This is a great video of a young Coral Hind. While juveniles, they can eat up to 30% of their body weight. They like to stay close to the bottom of the tank, near their hideout. These fish grow to 16," although sometimes smaller in captivity. Only keep one per tank since they are very territorial.
This video shows two adult Coral hinds in the wild, swimming near their favorite food, the Lyretail Anthias! This male and female show the size difference, since males are larger. They can have a darker red at the back part of the body with blue accents on the back fins. These fish grow to 16" or 41 cm and are best kept singly in a 100 to 180 gallon tank. Groupers will sometimes elicit the help of octopus or Gray Moray eels to flush out a morsel hiding within the rocks or corals of the reef.
E. Holmes - 2014-08-25 I just purchased one today and I must say that it is a stunning fish to have in the tank. If you want to keep one, make sure your tank is large enough and you have plenty of rockwork for it to hide in. It doesn't come out much because that's not in it's nature, but when it does....WOW!
some fish lover! - 2009-12-01 I just got one to put with my panther grouper in my 30 gallon tank and he never stops swimming around. The panther grouper chases him sometimes but it seems like he is fighting for territory. great fish!
johnny - 2006-02-12 i have owned a miniatus for several months and like the last comment when i added tangs he went for them because he is so territorial. if u plan on owning one of these beautiful fishes and housing them with other fish it is highly recommended that u put this grouper dead last in order of fish in your tank so he does not territorialize every part of your tank. always research fish before adding them to your tank because fish dont deserve to die or suffer.....good luck
