The Checkerboard Wrasse, Halichoeres hortulanus, also known as the Marble Wrasse or Hortulanus Wrasse, has a distinct and unique black and white checkerboard patterning rightfully earning its name. Often the Checkerboard Wrasse has vibrant yellow finnage and a blue/red/yellow splotchy face. The Checkerboard Wrasse requires a tank with plenty of rock for the wrasse to retreat to and a good amount of soft sandy substrate for it to hide in if spooked. The tank should have a tightly closed lid to prevent the Checkerboard Wrasse from escaping.They often hunt and feed on pesky bristle worms making them a beneficial addition to most tanks.
