Wrasses live fine with reef systems and a community of other fish that they can clean is necessary for their survival. This is why they do not generally live long lives in captivity, as parasites and other meal items may be scarce. Housing them with many large fish in an equally large tank will better their chances of having a proper diet. Some may eventually accept frozen shrimp and other meaty prepared foods including pellets and flakes, but others will not.* As such, this fish should only be considered by advanced aquarists.
Available as "Treated" using our proven protocols to keep our fish healthy or as "30 Day Quarantine" where the fish goes through a 30 day quarantine in order to have the highest quality of fish health before being brought into your system. The quarantine option does require a wait time in order for it to go through this quarantine.
