Husbandry

Allen & Robertson, 1995

Very special thanks for the first two photos of Xyrichtys wellingtoni to Dr. Ross Robertson, Australia.

He has taken the photos at Clipperton Island, where this wrasse lives in reef-surrounded sand patches in a depth of 20 to 50 meters.

This species is endemic to the Eastern Pacific, and is only found in the Clipperton Atoll.
