    Additional Information & Description

    I have a pair of these wrasses, have had them for over a year Lovely!

    My male has lost most of his prime coloration though (the reference pic was when I got him, wild coloration), and color-wise, has pretty much reverted to female coloration. I will need to get him more females in the future to bump his coloration back up to where it was when I got him.

    Male (now, after a year in captivity):

    SAY NO TO FISH STICKS - Put screened and vented lids on your tanks, and save your wrasse

    Current tank: 80 Gal XXL Reef & 25 Gal Cube QT
