      Oxycheilinus celebicus
      Max. size: 24.0 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; marine ; depth range 3 - 40 m
      Gazetteer Western Pacific: Moluccas to the Solomon Islands, north to southern Japan, south to Rowley Shoals; Palau to eastern Caroline and Marshall Islands in Micronesia.
      Morphology: Dorsal spines (total): 9; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 8. The cheek lacks the multiple lines below the eye and dorsal fin has two thin, usually irregular, red marginal lines. The concave head profile of this species is similar to that of C. oxycephalus, but its coloration is distinctive.
      Biology: Inhabits coral-rich areas of protected reefs, with a rich mix of soft and brittle hard corals and other invertebrates
      Aquarium Care: Has a temperature range of 75 - 83°F (24 - 28°C) and has a natural diet of small fishes. Requires a meaty diet consisting of enriched clam and mussel meat, small snails, mysis, and enriched brine shrimp with two to three feedings per day. They will eat snails, worms (including fire worms and feather dusters) shrimp (ornamental and mantis), crabs, brittle stars, sea stars, and small fish, therefore they are not recommended for the reef aquarium. Very hardy, yet becomes aggressive with age. One per tank
