The Jeweled Leopard Wrasse (Myrichthys pardalis), also known as the Mauritius Jeweled Wrasse, can be found among the reefs of the Indian Ocean. Males have a beautiful white body with a red cross-hatched pattern and a bright yellow head. Though only reaching a maximum size of 4 inches, they should be housed in an aquarium with at least 50 gallons, as they require plenty of room to swim around. Wrasses are curious by nature, spending the majority of their time inspecting rockwork and scavenging for small invertebrates, such as crustaceans, worms and mollusks. They do well in reef aquariums and should be kept singly or in a bonded pair, as two males may show aggression towards one-another.
