The Half & Half Wrasse, Hemigymnus melapterus, also known as the Banner Wrasse, Banner Half & Half Wrasse, Maori Wrasse, Thicklip Wrasse, Blackedge Wrasse, and Blackeye Wrasse. Featuring a stunning black scaly back half of its body with a gorgeous silvery face with vague blue stripes and thick lips.
They are best kept in large aquariums with plenty of live rock, a thick sandy substrate to allow for burrowing, and a tightly sealed lid to prevent escapes. They have also been know to eat worms present in the aquarium, such as fan worms and bristle worms.
The Half & Half Wrasse may be shy upon first being introduced to the aquarium, and may be finicky about eating, or may not eat at all for a few days. However, after this Wrasse is comfortable is it's new environment, it will accept food and become quite hardy.
