Curator's Note
Wrasses are known to jump from aquariums. Be sure to have some sort of covering with no large open holes that they can escape from. Choati Wrasse require sand to hide in when harassed or frightened and to sleep in. This fish is intolerant of treatments that may contain copper. Copper is often used as a treatment for diseases. ITEM MUST BE SHIPPED WITHIN 2(TWO) DAYS OF PLACING ORDER.
Description
The red spotted coloration on the Choati Leopard wrasse is a striking addition to a reef or fish only community aquarium. The Choati Leopard Wrasse has similar dietary requirements as Mandarin Dragonettes and will spend itís day searching for copepods and other tiny, almost microscopic crustaceans. These tiny crustaceans are found in well established aquariums and in order to keep the Choati wrasse healthy, numbers of these tiny creatures must be maintained. It is recommended to have either a sump or refugium to give a safe place for copepods and other small crustaceans to multiply safely without predation.
Diet
Feed a varied diet consisting of large chunks of meaty foods. These foods include finely chopped krill, raw table shrimp, squid, clam and mussel. Will learn to adapt to captive diet and will also likely supplement the captive diet by consuming amphipods and copepods (small flea-like animals that will establish in seasoned aquariums. Supply of these animals will remain consistent with the addition of a sump or refugium).
