Photo of the Week - Thalassoma hebraicum

This is a photo of a Male Goldbar Wrasse (Thalassoma hebraicum) They are a common fish in the Western Indian Ocean that are occasionally seen in the marine aquarium trade and are also harvested by subsistence fishermen. They are usually found in fairly shallow, tropical seas. The largest specimen on record is just under 10 inches. They are very hardy aquarium inhabitants. Feed them a diet of varied, marine based, meaty foods, preferably more than once per day. They also quickly adapt to pelletized foods, which can be used to supplement their diet.
