Husbandry

Randall, 1981

Very special thanks for the first photos of Labropsis micronesica to Dr. J. E. Randall from Hawaii.

He has taken this photo at Enewetak, Marshall Islands.

This species is a small wrasse that occurs in clear lagoon and seaward reefs at depths of seven to over 33 m. Juveniles usually associate with ramose Acropora corals to gain protection from the branches.

Labropsis micronesica is found from Belau to the Caroline, Mariana and Marshall Islands.

Classification: Biota > Animalia (Kingdom) > Chordata (Phylum) > Vertebrata (Subphylum) > Gnathostomata (Superclass) > Pisces (Superclass) > Actinopterygii (Class) > Perciformes (Order) > Labridae (Family) > Labropsis (Genus) > Labropsis micronesica (Species)
