      Scientific Name: Cirrhilabrus luteovittatus
      Max. size: 12.0 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; marine ; depth range 7 - 30 m
      Distribution: Pacific Ocean: Pohnpei, Caroline Islands and Marshall Islands. Strays found at Johnston Atoll.
      Morphology: Dorsal spines (total): 11; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8-9; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 9. The initial phase of this species is orange-red becoming nearly white ventrally.
      Biology: Occurs in small groups over lagoon patch reefs. Feeds on zooplankton in the water column
      Aquarium Care:Has a temperature range of 72 - 82°F (22 - 28°C) and has a natural diet of zooplankton. Requires a meaty diet, including fortified brine shrimp, mysis, black worms and other meaty type frozen foods. Needs two or three feedings per day. They make good reef aquarium inhabitants if supplied with ample crevices and caves. They don't bury themselves in the sand at night, as do many other wrasses. Instead, they form a mucus cocoon similar to some parrotfishes and/or wedge themselves into a rock crevice. It should be noted the cocoon remnants do not seem to harm water quality or other aquarium inhabitants. This is a real beauty! May hide for several days when introduced, and also a good jumper!
