This wrasse, as an adult, has a pastel blue body with six, vertical dark body stripes and a distinct "daisy-like" print around the eyes made of a few different pastel colors.Feed a variety of feeder shrimp, marine flesh, frozen meaty preparations for carnivores, and flaked foods.This fish does better in an aggressive community with larger aggressive tank mates. Provide plenty of rockwork for hiding places.This fish will become territorial and become aggressive to newcomers and should be added last.The Wrasse family of fish is a large group of usually very colorful free swimmingfish. These fish are powerful swimmers using their pectoral fins to propel themthrough the water. Wrasses usually have powerful jaws that enable them to crushtheir food, which includes worms. These fish usually have long continuous dorsalfins and are found in groups in the wild. The Wrasses are one of the few fish thatwill bury themselves in the sand when sleeping or during flight.
