This is a really hardy fish, the White-spotted Grouper is not always a real pretty fish, but it's a real survivor!
We bought the grouper in our picture above as a White-spotted Grouper. We are not sure what species it is, but it looks to be of the genus Ephiniphelus. There are many fish in the Ephiniphelus genus. We have had this fish for several years and it has stayed the same size, so we believe it is full grown.
This juvenile Whitespotted Grouper has the same lightning flash hunting reaction as the adults! Looking at the pattern we can determine that this is a juvenile fish since adults have white irregular rows of lines and large white blotches. This grouper will grow to 11.8" (30 cm) and will require a 75 to 90 gallon tank that does not have any tank mates that can fit into it's mouth! Groupers come to know their owners and are great long term pets!
This is an excellent video of an adult Whitespotted Grouper with it's adult coloring. You can see the white splotching on the body, white lines, and dark margins on the back of the dorsal, anal and tailfin. To get an idea of the full size of this fish, you can see adult Blue-Headed Wrasses nearby who are dwarfed in comparison to this 12" grouper. Most websites recommend a 150 gallon tank. This grouper is very aggressive and will defend it's hideout quite adamantly!
Cindy Polson - 2012-03-24 I have a white spotted grouper he is sick, he hardley eats, he has a white film over his body. Also he has large white oval spots on him. What can I Do?
Jeremy Roche - 2012-03-24 First have water tested. Quarantine grouper if you can. A lot of times if a fish is being bothered by parasites it will produce extra mucus on its body giving the white coating. Your fish needs to be treated for parasites or a fungal infection.
