The Red Cigar Wrasse, Hologymnosus rhodonotus, or the Red Striped Cigar Wrasse, is a horizontally red striped wrasse with a clean white-yellow body. Often the rear of the Red Striped Cigar Wrasse turns into a light gradient of yellow. This fish's beauty does not come from intricate patterns or colors, rather from its simplicity. The Red Cigar Wrasse, like many wrasses, requires some amount of rocks and crevices for it to hide. It is also recommended that the Red Cigar Wrasse be housed in a tank with a tightly secured lid to prevent escape. The Red Cigar Wrasse may pick on smaller invertebrates if left to do so. They will feed on frozen shrimp or dry herbivorous foods. The Red Cigar Wrasse is a relatively rare variation of wrasse and a great addition to most fish and coral only tanks.
