Potter’s Leopard Wrasse EXPERT ONLY



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" Please note that we will ensure that ALL aquatic species we provide will arrive in good shape.

Helpful Questions From Clients
Frequently Asked Questions
Is hiring a professional necessary to set up a saltwater aquarium?

As a general rule, a larger custom aquarium might require installation by a professional. However, a kit from our online fish store is relatively affordable and beginner friendly. That means you should have no problem setting it up yourself.

Which saltwater aquarium fish should you choose when starting out?

Consider a yellow tang fish. This popular saltwater aquarium fish does a great job of coexisting with other types of fish you’ll find in our online fish store.

How does a saltwater aquarium differ from a freshwater one?

Saltwater aquariums require a bit more maintenance and monitoring than freshwater tanks. Different fish require different levels of salinity, pH tolerances, and temperature requirements. They also require specialized pumps, filters, and other equipment that can handle salt. We can guide you through everything you need to know to set up a healthy, thriving reef tank.

Do fish in a saltwater aquarium swim in a school?

That depends on the species. However, if it’s a fish that swims in a school in the wild, they’ll do the same in an aquarium. Some fish that swim in schools include the green and blue chromis, cardinalfish, and dartfish, for example. When ordering from an online fish store, make sure you do your research on how specific fish species behave to ensure they’ll school (or at least coexist) with your current fish.

Is the effort required to maintain a saltwater aquarium worth it?

Yes! Many aquarists dream of owning thriving saltwater aquariums. You have a tiny piece of the ocean in your home, featuring magical and exotic fish that can only survive in saltwater.
