      Labroides bicolor
      Max. size: 15.0 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; marine ; depth range 2 - 40 m
      Gazetteer Indo-Pacific: East Africa to the Line, Marquesan and Society islands, north to southern Japan, south to Lord Howe Island; throughout Micronesia.
      Morphology: Dorsal spines (total): 9; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10-11; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 9-10
      Biology: Occurs in lagoon and seaward reefs to at least 40 m. Territorial around prominent coral formations called 'cleaning stations'. Juveniles generally solitary and quite secretive in caves while adults may wander over a large area in search of other fishes with ectoparasites
      Aquarium Care:Has a temperature range of 75 - 83°F (24 - 28°C) and has a natural diet of skin parasites. Usually does not fare well in aquariums unless there is a large population of fishes willing to be cleaned. May accept some meaty foodstuffs, however, better left in the wild.
