Jansen's wrasse

Jansen's wrasse (Thalassoma jansenii) is a species of wrasse native to the Indian Ocean. In the Pacific Ocean it is replaced by sibling species Blackbarred Wrasse. It is a reef inhabitant, preferring rocky areas, and can be found at depths from 1 to 15 m (3.3 to 49.2 ft). This species can grow to 20 cm (7.9 in) in total length.[2] Like many other coral reef wrasses, this species swims actively over the reef using solely their pectoral fins for thrust (known as labriform locomotion).[3] It can also be found in the aquarium trade.[2]
