Information on Choat’s Red Leopard Wrasse
The red-spotted hue of this Choati Leopard wrasse is an impressive addition to any aquarium that is a fish-only or reef-based community aquarium. This Choati Leopard Wrasse is similar in food requirements to Mandarin Dragonettes and will spend the day searching for copepods as well as other small crustaceans that appear to be microscopic. These crustaceans are only present in aquariums with a good reputation and to maintain the Choati wrasse healthy, the number of these small creatures needs to be kept. It is suggested to install either a sump or a refugium that provides a secure environment for copepods and tiny crustaceans to reproduce without fear of predation.
Choat’s Red Leopard Wrasse Diet
Feed your fish a varied diet comprised of large pieces of meaty food items. Include small pieces of Krill, table shrimp that is raw as well as squid, clam, and mussels. They will learn to adjust to their diet in captivity and will likely complement the diet of captives by eating copepods and amphipods (small animal-like fleas that grow in well-established aquariums. The supply from these creatures will be in line when accompanied by the refugee or sump).
