The Christmas Wrasse, Halichoeres ornatissimus, also known as the Ornate Wrasse displays a brilliant red and green coloration pattern giving it is name. It has green mask-like markings across its face that are unique to each individual. They are an incredibly active species that requires plenty of live rock hiding places and a tightly sealed lid to prevent jumping. The Christmas Wrasse also thrives off a deep sandy substrate that it likes to bury itself in. Somewhat aggressive, this wrasse should be kept with tankmates of a similar size and away from small invertebrates. The Christmas Wrasse will feed on an omnivorous diet.
