Juveniles are brown with large white blotches and mimic the movement of a poisonous flatworm for defense against predators. They gain more spots and the spots reverse from white to black as they age. Fish within in the Grunt family do not often appear in private aquaria, but can be kept in a very large tank under proper conditions. They are predatory fish and mostly live off benthic crustaceans, worms and fish.
