Info

Macropharyngodon marisrubri Randall, 1978

The Leopard Wrasse is difficult to keep because of its eating habits, relying on small invertebrates (foraminiferans and amphiopods). It needs a 50 gallon or larger aquarium with well established live rock. It also requires a layer of live sand, with other peaceful tank mates.
