Overview

The Blue Line Grouper, also known as the Boenacki Grouper or Blue-lined Hind, is light red with multiple vertical blue lines. The fins are highlighted with dark blue.

A 250 gallon or larger aquarium is required due to its size and feeding habits. It is an extremely aggressive fish and may eat its tank mates as well as crustaceans.

The Blue Line Grouper prefers a diet of meaty foods such as krill, shrimp, and other small fish.
