Angulatus Flasher Wrasse also known as Carpenter's flasher wrasse is special fish with a surprisingly flashy behavior. This beautiful fish was named in the honor of Dr. Kent E. Carpenter of Old Dominion University. He was a renowned collector of Angulatus Flasher Wrasse. These fishes were mainly found in reefs of western Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean. The depth of reef generally varies from 27 to 45 m (89 to 148 ft). Flasher wrasses, another popular name, can generally reach a maximum standard length of 8 cm (3.1 in). These flashers hold immense importance in the aquarium trade. They can easily adapt to any captive environment and can survive on a simple carnivorous diet. Marked as reef-safe, Flasher Wrasse doesn?t attack its fellow nibbles and invertebrates at coral polyps. Male wrasses flare its fins to attract its female counterparts for mating. The flashing is a very short and quick phenomenon. The intensity of color is higher in males, which is why, males are called better flashers. They usually start flashing near the reef rocks, continue it in the water column and return to the point of origination. Desirable by many aquarists, flashing is a very rare scenario in the absence of females.
