Husbandry

Valenciennes, 1840

Anampses geographicus occurs in shallower insular and coastal waters, primarily around coral reefs, in depths from 3-25 meters.
It may also occur over algal habitats and is commonly captured live and traded as an aquarium display species.

Geographic wrasse is carnivorous, feeding mainly on benthic macro-invertebrates, and especially crustaceans

Synonyms:
Anampses lienardi Bleeker, 1875
Anampses pterophthalmus Bleeker, 1857
