Description

Details

The Timor Wrasse (Halichoeres timorensis) is an attractive and rare wrasse found in a small region between Sir Lanka nad Indonesia. Males are green with reddish patterns that form vague circles on the sides and diagonal stripes on the head. Females are more distinctive with a light green body covered with bright orange dashes and a light-ringed dark spot on the middle of the dorsal fin. Wrasses from the Halichoeres and Thalassoma genera are some of the most active in the wrasse group. Most are narrow and torpedo-shaped. While Thalassoma wrasses are often in the upper to mid-water ranges of the aquarium, Halichoeres wrasses are often closer to the substrate or rockwork, especially when young. They also bury themselves in the substrate when resting or threatened. Because of this behavior, Halichoeres wrasses are often confused with some Coris wrasses. Thalassoma wrasses are also sometimes known as paddlefin wrasses due to their use of their pectoral fins while swimming. Longer aquariums with plenty of swimming room are best for these wrasses.
