Husbandry

Pseudocoris occidentalis

Very special thanks for the first photo of the juvenile Pseudocoris occidentalis to Dr. Richard Winterbottom.

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
