The Green Wrasse is also known as the Pastel Green Wrasse or Green Coris. Its pastel green body with beautiful markings makes a great addition to any reef tank. The Green Wrasse is an unusual colored fish who will spend most of its early introduction hiding in the sand. It is widely known for its ability to eat fireworms, flatworms and, and pyramidillid snails. We suggest you to keep a thick sand arrangement in your aquarium, because when frightened it generally hides itself there. It is a jumper, so make sure to have a closed aquarium. The Green Wrasse can be fed with large chunks of meaty foods, such as krill, raw table shrimp, squid, clam and mussel or flake foods. It is peaceful towards other fishes, and therefore makes a peaceful fish for a reef tank. Since the Green Wrasse is small, hardy and easy to care for, it makes best suitable for a marine aquarium and also for a beginner saltwaterfish aquarist. It is advised to keep an eye over the Green Wrasse, because sometimes it is considered reef safe and sometimes it may not because it can be found nibbling on corals. It should be kept in an aquarium not less than 25 gallons, and should be decorated cleverly with live rocks and sand. The Green Wrasse thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degree Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.3. It is easy to feed the Green Wrasse and it generally accepts any types of foods that include marine flake food, meaty food, and frozen food and chopped sea food. It is quite difficult to breed the Green Wrasse species in captivity.
