Photo of the Week - Halichoeres chierchiae

The Wounded Wrasse is found on the west coast of the Americas, from Panama to N. Mexico. They are usually found around reefs in less than 20m of water. They eat mostly motile invertebrates so they aren't really reef safe, unless you don't mind replacing snails, crabs, and urchins. (I wouldn't recommend even having starfish). Amazingly hearty and grow to about 7 or 8 inches in the wild, more commonly 5ish in captivity.
