Husbandry

Very special thanks for the first photo of Pseudocoris heteroptera to the Hawaii ichthyologist Jack Randall.

Pseudocoris is a genus of wrasses native to the eastern Indian Ocean and the western Pacific Ocean.

Found in outer reef crests in small aggregations. Females occur in small groups, and usually a male is nearby. Feeds on zooplankton
