The Leaflip Grouper, also known as the Spotted Soapfish, Snowflake Soapfish, or Leaflip Soapfish, is silverish-brown with white spotting over the entire body. It has black tiger stripes along its dorsal edge.

A 125 gallon or larger aquarium is required due to its size and eating habits. It is an aggressive fish and may eat tank mates as well as crustaceans. The mucous of the coat is toxic and deters other fish from trying to eat it.

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

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 1-1/2" to 2-1/2" Medium: 2-1/2" to 4" Large: 4" to 6" XLarge: 6" to 7"
