      Stethojulis balteata
      Max. size: 15.0 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; marine ; depth range - 15 m
      Gazetteer Eastern Central Pacific: Hawaiian Islands and Johnston Island.
      Biology: Occurs in reef flats and clear lagoon and seaward reefs. Feeds primarily on bivalves, polychaete worms, peanut worms, gastropods, various small crustaceans and foraminiferans
      Aquarium Care:Has a temperature range of 70 - 76°F (21 - 24°C) and has a natural diet of benthic invertebrate and zooplankton. Requires a meaty diet consisting of finely chopped enriched fish or shrimp flesh, mysis, and enriched brine shrimp with two to three feedings per day. Difficult to feed, and sometimes bury themselves if frightened. Usually, they sleep under rock shelves, on or under a coral branch, in a crevice, or directly on the sand surface, however, providing a deep sandbed of about 3 inches (7.5 cm) of fine-grained sand would be a good idea. Difficult to maintain and better left in the wild.
