Potter’s Leopard Wrasse EXPERT ONLY

Greek Name: (Macropharyngodon geoffroyi)



Potter’s Wrasse is also known as the Potter’s Leopard Wrasse Geoffroy’s Wrasse as well as Shortnose Wrasse. Its body is orange-peach with bright blue marks.

A 50-gallon or bigger aquarium that has tranquil tankmates and well-established live rocks and sand is the best since these fish are prey on tiny vertebrates (copepods as well as amphipods).

The Leopard Wrasse must be kept in an aquarium with at minimum a two-inch thickness of fine sand since the fishes will bury themselves in the substrate during the night to provide protection.

A diet that is enriched with brine shrimp, mysis frozen as well as black worms and other frozen carnivore-friendly preparations and other carnivores, served in small amounts 3 to 4 times per day, is the best option.

Approximate Size of Purchase: Small: 1″ to 1-3/4″; Medium: 1-3/4″ to 2-1/4″; Large: 2-1/4″ to 3-1/2″
