The grunts are a family, Haemulidae, of fishes in the order Perciformes.

They are bottom-feeding predators, and named for their ability to produce sound by grinding their teeth. They also engage in mutualistic relationship with cleaner gobies of genus Elacatinus, allowing them to feed off of ectoparasites on their bodies....
