The Chiseltooth Wrasse, Pseudodax moluccanus, exhibits a beautiful brown checkered body, electric blue trimming on its fins, and a yellow and black tail. Juveniles have a black and neon blue body with maroon finnage. The Chiseltooth Wrasse is simply a gorgeous fish.
The Chiseltooth Wrasse is an excellent wrasse species for most home aquariums. It is peaceful, easy to care for, and is reef safe. This wrasse is best kept in a tank of at least 50 gallons, with plenty of live rock hiding places, and a tightly sealed lid to prevent escapes. They will feed primarily on a carnivorous diet including vitamin enriched foods like brine and mysis shrimp as well as quality flake and pellet foods. This semi-rare wrasse is beautiful both as a juvenile and adult and friendly making for a wonderful addition to any tank.
