    Clearly it does, since I clicked through and read your post but have no idea where to find an Ornate Leopard Wrasse (or honestly even what that is). Lol

    Lol. Well now I know what it is because I googled it. Looks a lot like a non-ornate one to me. I feel like I’m at a R2R live sale where they intentionally artificially inflate the posts and views...

    Dang clickbait sites....
    :)


    Nice fish. Had to look it up.
    Sounds like a real pain to keep fed, especially through QT.

    They actually have one there in the display tank, but they won't sell it.

    Saw one today that looked similar to that, no idea if it's he same one your looking for, or if it's male. Saw it at all about fish. Good luck.

    That one looks like a female blue star (bipartitus) Leopard to me.

    Many Wrasses are very easy to sex because males and females have completely different markings. Now don't ask about sub-adult males or Terminal males :) In the case of the Blue Star leopard wrass above the female has that divided look with blues, reds and yellows. The male has mostly green markings:

    They usually go male eventually.

    Usually but Leopards don't always turn unless you put two in the tank. Plus I'm impatient and hate waiting.
