The Earmuff Wrasse (Halichoeres melasmapomus) is a rare jewel among the Wrasse family. They are endemic to the Indo-Pacific Ocean where they search the reefs for invertebrates like small crabs, shrimp and worms. Males can have a teal head that fades into a red posterior, with green or red fins. They have two black spots near their gills, giving the appearance of them wearing earmuffs. They reach a maximum size of 5 inches and should be kept in a tank with at least 65 gallons with plenty of live rock. Tight lids are recommended, for as is true for many wrasse, they can jump through small openings. They do well in reef aquariums, but should not be kept with small and prized invertebrates. Their diet should consist of carnivorous preparations multiple times a day.
