Husbandry

Randall & King, 2010

Very special thanks for the first photo of Apogon limenus to Sennis R. King, South Africa.

The photo of this wrasse was taken in the Durban, South Africa.

Halichoeres zuluis a rare species with paucity of specimens, this is partly due to its misidentification as Halichoeres nebulosus, its usual shallow-water habitat off exposed rocky shores where it is difficult to collect and its being very elusive.
The wrasse is found on rocky bottom or sand with scattered patches of reef at depths of 0.5-1.5 meters. A male individual was photographed from a pool (about 5 m long, 2 m wide and 1.2 m deep) almost close to the sea at low tide.
