The Black Leopard Wrasse is commonly referred as Yellowspotted Wrasse or
Leopard Wrasse. It features a dark body with light blue to yellowish
spots, which makes it a captivating specimen in your tank. The Black
Leopard Wrasse requires a tank of 30 gallons with plenty of rocks to
give an opportunity to carry out its natural browsing behavior in
captivity. It is best to introduce it in groups of three or more, and it
tends to eat small invertebrates that grow on live rocks. Its diet
should include vitamin enriched frozen mysis shrimp, vitamin enriched
frozen brine shrimp, and other meaty foods along with high quality
marine flake and marine pellet food. The Black Leopard Wrasse thrives
well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit, pH of 8.1-8.4.
It is peaceful and wonderful fish that can be housed with others of the
same genus. Due to its specialized eating habits and nature, the Black
Leopard Wrasse should only be attempted by intermediate to advanced
aquarists, since it is difficult to handle. It has curious behavior, and
performs a little dance that becomes really strange to a possible
predator, which makes them baffled and they finally move on. The tank
requires a thick sand bed, where the Black Leopard Wrasse can sleep and
take rest. It has beautiful black body color, where on the male the
spots are diamond shaped, whereas the female is similarly colored. The
Black Leopard Wrasse is difficult to keep and that is why it is not
considered a good choice for a beginner aquarist. It is carnivorous and
likes to feed on small invertebrates, and snails, which it picks from
the reef with its canine teeth. That is why it is not considered a good
reef safe species. The Black Leopard Wrasse needs to have lot of rocks
to ensure an easy transition to captive life, along with a 2 inch thick
sand bed. If it is housed with semi-aggressive fish, the Black Leopard
Wrasse might jump out of the tank and therefore we recommend you to put
it in a closed lid tank.
