This beautiful fish, Cromileptes altivelis (Valenciennes,1828), is also known as a Panther grouper, a Polkadot or Baramundi cod.
This one in particular I rescued & held in a quarantine tank for rehabilitation. As you can see it`s quite underweight, but with tender care & a good diet, I was able to bring it back to a healthy condition. Although it`s too large a fish at maturity, to be a permanent resident in one of my tanks, I would not hesitate to repeat the process for another one. It has been placed in a nice large fish only tank at a friend`s place here in Malibu.
On Planet Earth, beyond the Boogie Woogie Man, is a set of some very colorful plate corals. The Boogie man is a little something I made today.

Have a safe weekend, please, & say "Hi" to a stranger.
