The Leopard Wrasse is also known as the Guinea Fowl Wrasse, or Blackspotted Wrasse. This species has two different appearances depending on gender. Females are white with multiple black or brown irregular spots with white to blue margins covering the entire body. The female's fins may have accents of yellow or tan. The males have an orangish-red background color with green mottling covering the body.
A 90 gallon or larger aquarium with well established live rock and a layer of live sand is recommended. They will do best when introduced in groups of three or more. It eats small invertebrates (foraminiferans and amphiopods) that grow on live rock.
The Leopard Wrasse diet should include vitamin enriched frozen mysis shrimp, vitamin enriched frozen brine shrimp, and other meaty foods along with a high quality marine flake and marine pellet food.<
