Pseudocoris is a genus of planktonic feeding labrids more affectionally known as Torpedo Wrasses. This name is aptly given for the speed at which they peruse their habitat, making capture and photography extremely frustrating.
Females are pinkish to pale purplish-grey with a silvery-white stripe above and below the eye, and a distinct red spot on the pectoral-fin base. Males are greenish-blue on the upper two-thirds of the body with a dense pattern of fine black spots and irregular vertical lines, a white belly, and dark outer caudal-fin rays making the tail appear deeply forked. Body moderately elongated, maximum length 6 inches.

Make sure a mesh lid is placed over the aquarium as this species is known for jumping from the aquarium.
