The Red Coris Wrasse is commonly referred to as the lown Wrasse, Red Labrid, or Yellowtail Coris. The juvenile and adult appearances vary greatly, where in adulthood, the body takes on a speckled blue coloration, the fins are decorated with yellows, reds, and blues, and the face is orange with green stripes. It is a medium maintenance fish that is not usually aggressive towards other fishes but may turn against the smaller fish. The Red Coris Wrasse feeds on sessile invertebrates, snails, clams, and corals and that is why it is not considered a reef safe species. Since it is a very delicate species and is difficult to keep, it should only be handled by advanced aquarists. The Red Coris Wrasse needs constant feeding and should be fed at least twice a day or optimally three times a day for its continued good health. It can be offered a diet of frozen prepared foods, minced fresh table shrimp, and a good flake food. The Red Coris Wrasse has a high metabolism and should never be kept with boisterous fishes or fishes that feed too boldly. It prefers a tank of at least 50 gallons with plenty of places to hide and swim. Multiple Red Coris Wrasses can be kept together but may fight as they grow. It will occasionally clean the body surface of other fishes, in an attempt to remove parasites and dead tissue. The Red Coris Wrasse attains a size of 1-3 inches and makes a good choice for a medium fish-only aquarium. It thrives well in temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4. The Red Coris Wrasse prefers brightly lit aquarium and adapts well in the environment as described.
