The Six Line Wrasse, Pseudocheillinus hexataenia,  has a blue body with six orange horizontal stripes racing from head to tail with a petite "false eye" at the base along with green tail fins. This false eye is structured to confuse predators and gives this intelligent fish a nice chance to escape. It is a very active fish and loves to wander in the tank with curiosity. The Six Line Wrasse loves to spend most of its time swimming and darting in and out the rocky caves. They are diurnal,which means they are active by day and sleep at night.
 They are great at getting rid of pests like Bristle Worms, parasitic pyramidellid Snails and Flatworms. They have also been known at times to clean ectoparasites, parasitic isopods and copepods from other fish. The Six Line Wrasse has powerful jaws that enable them to crush their food, which includes worms, and smaller Shrimp. 

A beautiful , beautiful fish . The picture doesn't do it justice. Fish easily adjusted to new environment and is a pleasure to watch swimming along the rocks.

This fish arrived in very good shape and was active immediately. It readily eats pellets and can often be seen foraging in the rocks and sand beds, despite being harassed by a larger 2-spot Coris wrasse in the same tank
