The Juvenile Red Coris Wrasse is red with white saddles, which resembles the Formosa Wrasse. It is a medium maintenance fish that is not usually aggressive towards other fishes but may turn against the smaller fish. The Juvenile Red Coris Wrasse feeds on sessile invertebrates, snails, clams, and corals and that is why it is not considered a reef safe species. Since it is a very delicate species and is difficult to keep, it should only be handled by an expert aquarist. The Juvenile Red Coris Wrasse needs constant feeding and should be fed at least twice a day or optimally three times a day for its continued good health. It can be offered a diet of frozen prepared foods, minced fresh table shrimp, and a good flake food. The Juvenile Red Coris Wrasse has a high metabolism and should never be kept with boisterous fishes or fishes that feed too boldly. It prefers a tank of at least 50 gallons with plenty of places to hide and swim. Multiple juveniles can be kept together but may fight as they grow. It will occasionally clean the body surface of other fishes, in an attempt to remove parasites and dead tissue. It attains a size of 1-3 inches, the Juvenile Red Coris Wrasse makes a good choice for a medium fish-only aquarium. It thrives well in temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4. The Juvenile Red Coris Wrasse prefers brightly lit aquarium and adapts well in the environment as described.

The Coris Wrasse can grow up to 14 inches in length.This fish undergoes dramatic appearance changes from juvenile to adult.The juvenile is orange with white stripes or spots across the back. The stripes or spots and the fins are outlined in black.This wrasse requires a large amount of space, a 100 gallon or larger aquarium is recommended. Sand MUST be provided as a substrate, the wrasse will burrow into the sand to sleep or hide when it feels threatened. The survival rate is poor if crushed coral or other substrate is provided.The Red Coris eats mostly shelled mollusks in the wild including hermit crabs, urchins, crabs, and on occasion tunicates. Captive fish should be offered meaty items, vitamin-enriched shrimp, and brine shrimp three times daily.
