      Thalassoma rueppellii
      Max. size: 20.0 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; marine ; depth range - 0 m
      Distribution:
      Gazetteer Western Indian Ocean: Red Sea.
      Biology: Inhabits reef margins and seaward slopes
      Aquarium Care:Has a temperature range of 75 - 83°F (24 - 28°C) and has a natural diet of benthic invertebrate and small fishes. 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. 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. They are highly active swimmers and need plenty of swimming space. They will also eat snails, worms, sea stars, urchins, and clams.
