The Saddle Grouper has a white or pale yellow body with five dark brown or black bars and numerous dark edged blue spots that are primarily on the posterior portions of the body.

A very large aquarium with plenty of live rock over hangs and caves is required due to its size, shy nature and feeding habits. Anyone thinking of keeping one of  this grouper species should have both the space and budget to house, feed and maintain a large adult fish. They can be an extremely aggressive fish that should not be kept with other Grouper species and may eat its smaller tank mates as well as crustaceans, However they will not harm corals.

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