Husbandry

Victor & Edward, 2015

Very special thanks for the permission to use the photo of Pseudojuloides zeus to Dr. Benjamin Victor, Ocean Science Foundation / Guy Harvey Research Institute, Nova Southeastern University.

The new species, Pseudojuloides zeus, is described from two specimens obtained from Majuro Atoll in the Marshall Islands and Palau in Micronesia, western Pacfic Ocean.
The species is distinguished by two prominent jagged blue stripes along the body and a dark spot at the base of the mid-dorsal fin.
Pseudojuloides zeus is a rarely seen fish, found only on particularly deep reefs and, thus far, from only two locations. The single paratype from Palau was
collected at about 80m during the 1997 ‘Twilight Zone’ Expedition by the Bishop Museum and, since then, a series of specimens have been collected
for the aquarium trade from similarly deep reefs at Majuro. The nearest relative is P. mesostigma, from Japan, Philippines, Indonesia, Vanuatu, Tonga, and the Great Barrier Reef, which
shares the very slender body and has a dark area on the mid-dorsal n and body, but does not have the distinctive
two blue stripes.
