The Flasher Wrasse shows different morphology during its juvenile stage and adult stage. With its stunning color, the Flasher Wrasse makes a great choice and colorful addition to any tank. It is very good jumper, so an aquarium with a closed lid is necessary to prevent it coming out of the tank accidentally. Sometimes, the Flasher Wrasse can be harassed by other species so it should be introduced first, especially the female Flasher Wrasse. The colors of the adult male Flasher Wrasse intensifies during courtship, whereas the female?s coloration is subdued. Although the male Flasher Wrasse may chase other zooplankton feeders, it is a medium maintenance fish and requires 30 gallon or larger aquarium. It is not that aggressive toward non related species, and is best to keep the Flasher Wrasse with peaceful tank mates, and usually only one male is advised to keep in a tank to avoid aggressive behavior. The Flasher Wrasse should feed on finely chopped meats and live on frozen brine and Mysis shrimps. It thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit, and pH of 8.1-8.4. The Flasher Wrasse is a favorite fish for every reef tank, and is a great substitute for harder to keep Anthias. The Flasher Wrasse is very hard to breed in captivity, but will sometimes spawn in large public aquariums. It does not need a sand bed as flasher wrasses create a mucus cocoon over their bodies for sleeping.
