The Bluehead Wrasse is a beautiful and multicolored wrasse that also demonstrates dramatic color variation within individuals based on gender and age. It is easy to maintain and have a longer life span in the aquarium. With their beautiful coloration, the Bluehead Wrasse fish make a great addition to any aquarium. The juvenile Bluehead Wrasse is generally yellow with black markings along their sides and sometimes on their fins. As an adult, the male Bluehead Wrasse has a bold stripe pattern. It demonstrates territorial behavior and harasses new additions to the aquarium. Therefore, it should be the last fish to add in the aquarium. Since the Bluehead Wrasse is carnivore it can consume crustaceans and invertebrates, but not corals or macroalgae, which is why it may considered reef safe but with caution. When frightened, the Bluehead Wrasse hides in the rock work or may bury themself in the sand. It gets along with the other tank mates quite well and can consume any prepared food that are provided to them. The Bluehead Wrasse has striking coloration and when it moves in the water gracefully, it surely grabs everyone?s attention to your aquarium. It is a gorgeous fish and is very good at jumping, therefore it is advised to keep the Bluehead Wrasse in a closed aquarium that prevents them to come out of the aquarium. The Adult Bluehead Wrasse has a different coloration as compared to juvenile. As an adult the Bluehead Wrasse fish are very aggressive and become territorial in nature. Breeding is not yet achieved in captivity. We also suggest you keeping a few live rocks and sand bed in your home aquarium to make it feel comfortable.
