..........................I BET YOU DIDN'T KNOW THIS
Hello there! I am the Slippery d**k Wrasse and my scientific name is Halichoeres bivittatus.
I enjoy constantly swimming about reefs, adjacent to sand areas and grass beds. I am very common throughout Florida, Bahamas, Caribbean; also Gulf of Mexico, north to North Carolina, Bermuda, and south to Brazil.
I am easily identified by my cigar-shaped bodies. I also have a darkish to black midbody stripe, and a lower stripe that is less distinct (and often absent). My tail is very triangular. I also always have a small green and yellow bicolored spot above my pectoral fin.
I enjoy being a total d**k to the other fish and shrimps that live with me in the aquarium by stealing their food. Even when those shrimp have big claws and sometimes they cut up my caudal fin. I still don't hesitate to yank the food out of their mouth, even when I am fat and full to bursting.
Usually if you approach me I will act unconcerned, but this does not mean I will get too close. Unless if you offer me food.
My colors are varied going from being brown/cream to completly white when juvenile, then changing to shades of green and rainbow colors when an adult.
Like all wrasses, I may change sex depending on biological and environmental circumstances. No one seems to know for sure how I received my colorful name, although (coming soon
If you don't believe that I am a fish google me
or ASK an Ichthyologist
TO SEE ME GO SNORKELING IN THE ATLANTIC OCEAN!!! I'm a very VERY common fish
