Husbandry

Gilbert, 1890

Very special thanks for the first photo of Thalassoma grammaticum to Dr. Ross Robertson, Australia, and Dr. J. E. Randall, the photos were taken at Revillagigedo and the Galapagos Islands, where this wrasse lives solitary in reefs found in reefs subjected to surges in a depht of 3 to 42 meters.

Sunset wrasse is endemic to the Eastern Pacific, and is found from southern Baja California and the southwestern and central eastern Gulf of California to northern Peru, including all the offshore Islands.

At Gulf of Chiriqui, Panamá, this wrasse was found in the zone of madreporic branching corals.

The Sunset wrasse moves over great distances to feed on hard-shelled invertebrates.
