The Wrasse within this category will not pick at nor consume corals or most invertebrates. They are some of the most colorful saltwater fish that can be incorporated into a reef aquarium. Many of these wrasse fish species are very active by nature and are nearly always open swimming.
Not Reef Safe
The Wrasse in this category are very beautiful and active fish that will make a wonderful addition to any marine fish only aquarium. Because of their diet in nature, these fish are not an easy fit for a reef aquarium, as they will readily consume most crabs, snails and tube worms. The ideal aquarium will have plenty of live rock for hiding and a sandy substrate for burrowing into at night.
