    A bud had a flounder in his tank. Never saw it apart from its eyes, was pretty cool to watch it eat though.

    No experience with these, but they would eat smaller fish n inverts.

    I would guess they would outgrow a regular marine tank fairly quickly.

    Just remember that flounders are ambush predators (thats why they go camo so well) I once caught one on rapala while fishing in the surf .So just be carefull with it in your reef tank and count your anthias every morning
