New Guinea wrasse

The New Guinea wrasse lives in the reef-associated, marine, depth range 4 - 25 m environment.

Anampses neoguinaicus Bleeker 1878, the New Guinea Wrasse (3) is a real beauty but fares no better than the rest of the genus. Shipping stress and traumas like mouth damage claim almost all of them. More
