The Timor Wrasse (Halichoeres timorensis) can be found among mid-level, seaward reefs in the Indo-Pacific Ocean. They have a light blue or green body with orange designs and occasional black specks. They reach a maximum size of 4 inches and should not be kept with larger predatory fish. They do best if kept singly or in a bonded pair, and if kept in reef aquariums or peaceful fish-only systems with plenty of live rock. They spend the majority of the day hiding among rocks or corals searching for small invertebrates, such as worms or crustaceans. At night, the Timor Wrasse is known to bury and hide among the sand, waiting for daylight to rise. They should be kept in aquariums with at least 50 gallons with fish of similar size and temperament. Their diet should consist of mysis, krill or brine shrimp multiple times a day.

Love my new Timor wrasse! It arrived healthy and eating right away. For me, the striking pattern on the body somewhat resembles a Choati leopard wrasse for a fraction of the cost. That is if I can ever find one and can successfully acclimate it to my tank. I will gladly substitute for the time being with the Timor!
