      Scientific Name: Coris flavovittata
      Max. size: 50.8 cm SL (male/unsexed); max. published weight: 4,620 g
      Environment: reef-associated; marine ; depth range - 98 m
      Distribution: Eastern Central Pacific: Hawaiian Islands and Midway Islands.
      Biology: Inhabits reefs with sand and rubble areas. Feeds on sea urchins, heart urchins, bivalves, gastropods, brittle stars, crabs, hermit crabs and polychaetes
      Aquarium Care:There's about 27 species in this genus, and some are fine as juveniles for the reef aquarium. Yet they grow destructive with age and are too big as adults, even for the average fish-only aquarium. They prefer bottom areas of fine sand, and spend much of their time turning over rock and coral rubble searching for small crustaceans. They bury themselves at night.
