Leopard Coral Trout
The leopard coral trout (Plectropomus leopardus), also known as the red grouper and the leopard coral grouper, is native to the western Pacific Ocean. Its natural habitat includes open seas and coral reefs. The brightly colored spots on this species have also earned this fish the name of jewel bass. This large fish can grow to a length of 3 feet (91 centimeters). This species is piscivorous, meaning it eats mostly fish. While the juveniles mostly eat crustaceans, the adults feed upon a variety of reef fish, particularly damselfish.
