Macropharyngodon ornatus - Telling male from female Hi, Can you tell me if there is a way to differentiate male from female Ornate Leopard Wrasses, Macropharyngodon ornatus?  I checked the WWM FAQs and found a great picture of my wrasse in Bob Fenner's article "Leopard Wrasses, the Genus Macropharyngodon".  It looks exactly like the lower of the 2 pictures of the M. ornatus.  I've also found information on how to tell the difference between male and female M. meleagris, but can't seem to find the same information for M. ornatus. Thanks for your help. Joe Jankauskis <Dr. Randall's got a pic ob both sexes on Fishbase.org: http://www.fishbase.org/Photos/ThumbnailsSummary.cfm?ID=12724  Males are decidedly a bit more drab here.  Bob Fenner>
