Halichoeres rubricephalus. Like other wrasses, this species may change sex and males and females are sexually dichromatic, so look completely different and could easily be mistaken for separate species. Males have a greenish body with a blue edge to the unpaired fins and characteristic red head. Females are yellow with blue longitudinal pinstripes and a couple of dorsal spots. There‚Äôs no specific data on diet, but most Halichoeres are foragers which pick at rocks and among the substrate for small benthic invertebrates and algae. They are typically simple to feed and readily will accept frozen Mysis and Artemia.
