      Scientific Name:Halichoeres timorensis
      Max. size: 12.0 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; marine ; depth range 5 - 10 m
      Distribution:Gazetteer Indo-West Pacific: known at present only from Sri Lanka to Indonesia. Male Halichoeres nebulosus and Halichoeres margaritaceus have always been misidentified as Halichoeres kawarin, which may be responsible for attributing a greater range to this species.
      Morphology: Identified by cheek and body patterns. Most similar to H. binotopsis and is best distinguished by the more angular versus horizontal cheek lines
      Biology: Found in shallow coastal reefs, mainly rock substrates with soft coral and algal growth. Occurs in small loose groups dominated by a large male
      Aquarium Care:These wrasses are hardy, adapt well to aquarium life, peaceful, take a wide variety of foodstuffs, resistant to parasitic infections, and compatible with other wrasses. They are usually found in outer reef areas, near rocky/coral rubble and sandy surroundings, yet may have an appetite for tubeworms.
