Blue Star Leopard Wrasse
Blue Star Leopard Wrasse, also known as the Vermiculite Wrasse, or Divided Wrasse, has a distinct color pattern. The females or juveniles have a pearly white body with a combination of mottled oranges, yellows, and browns, with light blue spots found throughout the pattern, along with a large blue to black spot on their stomach. The males are brilliant neon green and blue with black outlines in a broken striped pattern down the length of their bodies. Like other Labroids these fishes have the ability to change sex, as the most dominant fish in the group can turn into a fully functioning male.
