      Macropharyngodon geoffroy
      Max. size: 15.0 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; non-migratory; marine ; depth range 6 - 32 m
      Gazetteer Pacific Ocean: Hawaii southward to central Polynesia, westward through Micronesia, and through the East Indies.
      Biology: Found in mixed sand, rubble, and coral areas of seaward reefs. Feeds mainly on mollusks (prosobranch gastropods) and foraminiferans
      Aquarium Care:Has a temperature range of 74 - 79°F (23 - 26°C) and has a natural diet of benthic invertebrate. Requires a meaty diet consisting of finely chopped clam, mussel, fish, and shrimp flesh, small snails, mysis, and enriched brine shrimp with two to three feedings per day. Should only be kept in aquaria with a deep sandbed as they bury themselves at night, and when so, may often disturb bottom dwelling corals such as brain corals. Provide a fine-grained substrate of at least 3 inches (7.5 cm) in depth. Difficult to maintain long-term.
