    Hi guys. Dad bought this fish, and the LFS calls it a spotted wrasse. I can't find any info on google really helping me here. My dad says it is not taking the frozen veggies nor meat when he feeds it. It is pecking on rocks though - so it must propably be eating.

    Can you guys please post a tad more information for me on how to feed, do's and dont's please?

    Thanks

    I would rather go Anampses meleagrides....melanarus seems to have a "browner" coulor

    Had a look now, and jip your spot on. Also looks like it's a pretty difficult fish to keep alive.
