Usually found in small schools under ledges of corals, the French Grunt is a rather peaceful large fish suitable for tanks with other medium to large fish. It will eat most meaty based diets like Krill, Mysis, Clam or Seafoods. It is not considered to be reef safe. When stressed, it lives up to its name by making a grunting noise.
