Records from Hawaii are probably based on released aquarium fishes Ref. Short description Morphology Morphometrics Dorsal spines total : 10; Dorsal soft rays total : ; Anal spines : 3; Anal soft rays : 9 - This species is easily distinguished by its extreme smallness of size of the anterior part of the head as compared to the elevated postorbital part; absence of canine teeth, except for a very small pair at the front of the upper jaw; D X, ; A III, 10 rarely 9 ; a slit-like posterior nostril; color greenish white to light greenish brown with scattered round black spots on head, body, and fins, with body spots generally larger than those on head and fins; about 9 large roundish dusky blotches may be present on body, with some extending partly into base of dorsal and anal fins Ref. Also found around coral reefs and in tide pools. Growth is very slow. Feed on small fishes and crustaceans Ref.

There are however other species one can also keep under the right circumstances, but these are for the most, large predatory fish. Anthias Anthiinae The Anthias species spans over many different genera, but the most common is the Pseudanthias genus. They mostly have an attractive orange or pink shade. They are generally all reef safe and peaceful.
There is however a large difference to their food requirements, some species demand constant feeding, whereas others can get used to being fed once a day. The easiest species are the following: P. Grouper Epinephelinae These fish grow typically too large for most home aquaria.
There are however some species that do lend themselves to the slightly bigger domestic aquarium. Several of the species look very impressive and often have a interesting personality, and they often recognize the aquarist and will become tame over time. Groupers are predatory fish and eat everything they can swallow; fish, crabs, shrimps and sometimes other invertebrates.
Like most large predatory fish they excrete a lot of nutrients to the water, so one therefore needs a good filter system. Soapfishes Grammistinae These fish are like the Groupers predatory fish, but they do not typically, grow so large.
They are relatively hardy, but some of the species demand a thorough preperation if one wants to be successful. Soapfishes are generally very shy and will often hide under an overhang during the day, and hunt at night. Scott W.

It might be possible to keep smaller specimens for a limited period in a smaller tank. A larger tank might be needed for fully-grown specimens. Some species doesn't handle transportation very well, but that doesn't mean that the species isn't hardy under the right conditions.
In this case, a "normal" aquarium is a reef aquarium with mixed corals or a fish only aquarium with an approximately salinity of 1. Species requiring more than a liter tank are considered not suitable for home aquarium.
Special aquariums may cover tanks with low salinity, sub-tropical temperature, deep sand bed, sea grass etc. Always reef safe: No sources indicate that this species will harm corals or other invertebrates. Often reef safe: Only a few aquarists has reported problems keeping this species with corals and other invertebrates. Help Help for dosing calculator About Terms. Language English Deutsch Dansk.
Cromileptes altivelis. Grows fast. This species grows very quickly if fed well. Threat to fish and crustaceans. This species eats all kinds of fish, shrimps, crabs etc. Demand a very large aquarium when fully grown. This species needs a very large aquarium when fully grown. Requires a varied diet. This species must be fed with an appropriately varied diet. Heavy load. This species eats a great deal and demands an aquarium that can tolerate such a heavy load. This species often has a fun and interesting personality.
Hiding places. This species needs good hiding places, for example, between live rocks. Number of fish. Initially shy. This species can be very shy when first introduced into a new aquarium.
More aggressive fish can be introduced after this species has acclimatized. Family description Serranidae. See the description of the individual genera below. References and further reading.

The section is now dynamically updated from the NAS database to ensure that it contains the most current and accurate information. Occurrences are summarized in Table 1, alphabetically by state, with years of earliest and most recent observations, and the tally and names of drainages where the species was observed. The table contains hyperlinks to collections tables of specimens based on the states, years, and drainages selected. References to specimens that were not obtained through sighting reports and personal communications are found through the hyperlink in the Table 1 caption or through the individual specimens linked in the collections tables.
The Barramundi Cod is generally found in the waters off the Northern Australian coast and as far as Western Australia. Although this fish is plentiful in these waters it is not limited to this area. Barramundi Cod are most frequently found in dead or silty reef areas to a depth of 40 m. They inhabit lagoons and seaward reefs and are not uncommon around coral reefs and in tide pools. The younger fish live in shallow water and are occasionally seen in rock pools at low tide Froese and Pauly
It is rare in nature and high It is rare in nature and high priced both in the international ornamental market, and in the live food fish market centrally in Hong Kong and southern China. After introduction of the species into Hawaiian waters more than three decades ago, it has not been known to establish breeding stocks. From both environmental and biodiversity perspectives, there is a need to move away from depending on wild-caught to hatchery-produced juveniles for grow-out, and from using mixed fish feed to commercial compounded diets in grouper mariculture operations. Body compressed, the depth less than head length, and contained 2. Head length contained 2. Gill rakers short, 8 to 11 on upper limb, 13 to 17 on lower limb.
