The Pink Streaked Cryptic Wrasse, Pseudocheilinops ataenia
, also known as the Pelvic Spot Wrasse or Cryptic Wrasse.This Wrasse has clear yellow fins and slender vertical pink bars that get even thinner as it matures across its body, and a dark blue spot on it's pelvic fin, hence their name Pelvic Spot Wrasse. They are one of the smallest species of wrasse only growing up to 3 inches. They can be shy so provide lots of hiding spaces for them and give them a few weeks to acclimate to your tank as you may not see them much in the beginning. Once they warm up to their new surrounding however they are a beautiful fish with a quirky personality, greatly suited for reef tanks as they are coral safe and peaceful. They should be fed a mix of brine shrimp, mysis, pods, and other meaty saltwater foods 2-3 times per day.
The tank should contain a thick sand bed, along with live rock creating plenty of caves and crevices for retreating into to if needed. They may also bury themselves in the sand and will use a cocoon if they feel threatened when they sleep. Using a lid is also a good idea as the lined wrasses have been known to jump out of the aquarium.
