The Neon Wrasse is commonly referred to as the Yellowhead Wrasse. With its beautiful colored and designed body, it makes a beautiful addition to any home aquarium. The Neon Wrasse has a golden to yellow head, a black vertical bar behind the tip of the pectoral fin, which makes it a stunning fish. Juveniles have different morphology than adults. The Neon Wrasse grows up to size of 6 inches and needs to be kept in a tank of 35 gallons when it is small. Though it is peaceful to other fishes, it may become aggressive with conspecifics, thus we recommend keeping only one per tank. The Neon Wrasse requires plenty of swimming space along with good eater parameters. Its diet should include vitamin enriched frozen mysis shrimp, vitamin enriched frozen brine shrimp, and other meaty foods along with a high quality marine flake and marine pellet food. The Neon Wrasse thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4. It is also found nipping over the sessile invertebrates but not corals that is why it may consider reef safe but with caution. The Neon Wrasse is hermaphrodites and is born as females and the dominant female will develop into a male if there is not any male in the area. The Neon Wrasse prefers to spend most of its time in burrowing inside the sand, thus it is necessary to add a thick sand bed in the tank. We suggest you to acclimatize the Neon Wrasse first for at least 4 hours before releasing it into your aquarium.
