    [​IMG] What fish is this? If you type in http://www.advancedaquarist.com/2007/1/fish you'll see it. Does anyone know? It's the second one down, could anyone tell me? :)

    Ignore the picture, I couldn't find the URL for it.

    Blue dot grouper. Groupers in general equal really big Fricken tank and no other fish.

    Giant blue dot Grouper. Those things get massive! And they're not reef safe.

    How is a grouper, of any sort, not reef safe? The only thing they do is eat anything and everything. They don't bother corals, just fish and other inverts.

    I should have explained it better. By reef safe I meant that they weren't Invert safe or small fish safe.

    A reef generally has multiple fish (some small) fish and a plethora of inverts. None of those are safe with a grouper hence not being 'reef safe'
