The Kuiter's Leopard Wrasse (Macropharyngodon kuiteri), also known as the Ear Spot Wrasse, can be found among the reefs of Australia and Fiji. Males have a beautiful pale blue body with a red cross-hatched pattern and rusty-orange fins, while females have a vibrant orange body with yellow fins. 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.
