Leopard wrasses are very delicate and don't seem to take well to transport. They should be drip acclimated to a fully established, well matured reef system (at least six months to a year old if not older...the older the better). They can adjust and have seen them eat simple marine flake food and a variety of thawed out frozen food. Mysis shrimp and cyclops are good to add to the feed mix too...and don't forget to feed the fish their veggies

Even triggers and puffers mack hard on marine algae food.
We, as a people, know so much more about outer space than we do about our own oceans. This lack of knowledge can very well spell the dangers that lay in wait for us.

The oceans surely would swallow us before a rock comes down to smite the planet of it's life.
