Photo Of The Week - Mauritius Mystery Wrasse (Pseudocheilinus dispilus)
Out of all the Pseudocheilinus wrasses we have at Quality Marine, one of the most elusive is the Mauritius Mystery Wrasse. It is native around the countries of Madagascar, Mauritius, and Reunion. Divers commonly miss this wrasse as it likes to seek refuge within coral reefs, which is one of the reasons they are rarely seen in the trade. They are considered reef safe and should be added to aquariums with peaceful tank mates. They can be territorial, especially if there is a lot of live rock present, so it is recommended that this wrasse be one of the last fish added. For continued health, provide a varied diet of frozen meaty foods and marine pellets.
