The Ornate Leopard Wrasse, Macropharyngodon ornatus, is a uniquely beautiful fish with a black/green body speckled with yellow/gold dots. The Ornate Leopard Wrasse is one of the few wrasse species that can be housed successfully with members of its own species. If this is done, there should be one dominant male and multiple females.

The Ornate Leopard Wrasse should be housed in a tank with at least 2 inches of soft sandy substrate and plenty of live rock work allowing for the wrasse to burrow and hide. A tightly secured lid should also be kept on the tank to prevent escape.

The Ornate Leopard Wrasse has been known to do a unique "dance" to stave off potential predators.
