Geographic Wrasse

Species information for the Geographic Wrasse, in the Wrasses category.

  1. FAMILY - Labridae

    SCIENTIFIC NAME - Anampses geographicus

    COMMON NAME – Geographic wrasse

    SIZE – 12 in (30.5 cm)

    RANGE – Indo-West Pacific

    MIN. AQUARIUM SIZE – 150 gal (578 L)

    CARE LEVEL - Expert

    TEMPERAMENT - Peaceful

    FOODS AND FEEDING - It often refuses to eat in captivity, but if you can get it to eat it should be fed a variety of high quality meaty marine foods. It normally eats small invertebrates, especially small crustaceans, it finds on the rock work.

    AQUARIUM SUITABILITY – Please leave this fish in the ocean

    REEF COMPATIBILITY -

    CAPTIVE CARE - This fish will fight with members of its own species, but is peaceful towards other fish. The Geographic wrasse doesn’t have a record of success in the home aquarium. If you are going to attempt to keep this difficult fish, you should have a large aquarium with plenty of rock and small crustaceans for it to eat. They also require a sandbed of at least 3 inches to burrow in at night. Wrasses are known jumpers so the aquarium top should be covered.
