In the aquarium[កែប្រែ]
The panther grouper is commonly kept in marine aquariums. Great care must be taken when purchasing this fish, as it will reach a size of 50 cm (20 in) and is a very fast-growing fish. As this fish is typically sold while only a few inches in length, it is often purchased while small only to outgrow the aquarium within months. Its large adult size and fast growth rate means it should only be kept in a 300-gallon aquarium or larger. It also must not be kept with fish such as damselfish, which will be almost certainly eaten.
If kept in the proper conditions this is a very hardy, and long-lived fish.
