The Dragon Wrasse, Novaculichthys taeniourus, is also referred to as the Rockmover Wrasse, Striped Wrasse, Clown Wrasse, Reindeer Wrasse, or Red Belly Wrasse. The Dragon Wrasse has a beautiful black and white checkered body, an intricate striped mask, a subtle red belly, and long horn-like frills extending from its fins. 
Dragon Wrasses require a thick sandy substrate where they will burrow and sleep. They should be kept singly or in mated pairs in tanks  with plenty of live rock hiding places and a tightly sealed lid to prevent escapes. Brightly lit aquariums are best. It can be very entertaining to watch the Dragon Wrasse flip rocks around the tank as it searches for prey. 
On the whole, adult Dragon Wrasses can be more aggressive than juveniles.
