Today for Fishy Monday I'm going to tell you about the Coral Grouper Fish.
The Coral Grouper Fish is one of the more pretty species of grouper.Its mature size is 18 inches,1 3/4 of 2 feet,and can weigh up to around 12 pounds,I think.It is bright to orangish red with blue spots all over its body.The tail and dorsal fins are bright purple and are also covered in spots.Like most groupers,they are very aggressive feeding on almost anything that will fit in their chompers.The juveniles are yellow with white or black spots and are slightly smaller than the adults.They have tiny plates in their throats to crush up hard food,like clams and crustaceans.They are ambush predators,meaning they lie and wait for food.When food gets close enough the grouper can use a small burst of speed to get the fast little fish.they will also eat shrimp,squids,and mussels.
That's my report on the Coral Grouper Fish.I also got the info from ScupaTravel.com and BlooZooAquatics.com and the picture from google images.The End. P.S. Whats a mussel???
