Husbandry

Allen & Robertson, 1992

Very special thanks for the first four photos of Halichoeres malpelo to Dr. Ross Robertson, Australia.

Halichoeres malpelo can be found over coarse sand and gravel substrate between depths of seven and 20 metes, the wrasse lives endemic around Malpelo Island, an island about 310 miles away from Columbia.

There are less informations about this wrasse.
