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 colour with green mottling covering the body.
A 50 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 recommended water temperature when keeping Azure Damsel is 72-80° F (22-27° C), the pH-value should be kept in the 8.1-8.4 interval, and the specific gravity should be 1.020-1.025. A carbonate hardness of 8 - 12° dKH is ideal.
