Cuckoo Wrasse (Labrus mixtus) is a bright-looking fish that can be found in the colder waters around our coastlines. As with most wrasse species, they are usually born female and will turn into a male as they mature.
Female Cuckoo Wrasse can lay thousands of eggs at a time in a nest of algae and the male will guard the nest from predators.
