Husbandry

(Snyder, 1908)

Very special thanks for the first photo of Bodianus loxozonus to Jeff Dubosc from France.

He has taken the photo of this beautiful wrasse at New Caledonia.

The wrasse inhabits clear lagoons and seaward reefs, on slopes or along upper part of drop-offs at depths of 3–50 meters.
The fish feed mainly on benthic, hard-shelled, invertebrates such as molluscs and crustaceans.

Synonyms:
Bodianus loxozonus loxozonus (Snyder, 1908)
Lepidaplois loxozonus Snyder, 1908
Lepidaplois trotteri Fowler & Bean, 1923
