Care Facts

There are no key facts available for this product.

The Carpenter's Flasher Wrasse, Paracheilinus carpenteri, also known as the Carpenteri Flasher Wrasse and Carpenters Flasher Wrasse, exhibits vastly different body patterns between its juvenile and adult stage. Juveniles feature an orange body with blue vertical stripes that become yellow with blue horizontal stripes as the wrasse matures. 

It is very good jumper, so an aquarium with a closed lid is necessary to prevent it coming out of the tank accidentally. Sometimes, the Carpenter's Flasher Wrasse can be harassed by other species so it should be introduced first, especially the female Carpenter's Flasher Wrasse. The colors of the adult male Carpenter's Flasher Wrasse intensifies during courtship, whereas the female's coloration is subdued. Although the males Carpenter's Flasher Wrasse may chase other zooplankton feeders, it is a medium maintenance fish and requires at least 30 gallons. It is not that aggressive toward non-related species, and is best to keep the Carpenter's Flasher Wrasse with peaceful tank mates, and usually only one male is advised to keep in a tank to avoid aggressive behavior. The Carpenter's Flasher Wrasse should feed on finely chopped meats and live or frozen brine and mysis shrimps. It thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit, and pH of 8.1-8.4. The Carpenter's Flasher Wrasse is a favorite fish for every reef tank, and is a great substitute for harder to keep Anthias. The Carpenter's Flasher Wrasse is very hard to breed in captivity, but will sometimes spawn in large public aquariums.

Very friendly fish and gets along with all my other fish. He certainly knows when it’s time to eat. Never gets old just watching him move around the tank.
