Richmonds Wrasse

The Richmond's Wrasse is a real showstopper! With brilliant coloration, two false eyes when young, and tons of personality, Richmond's Wrasse will create quite the buzz when you post pics of this beauty online. The Richmond's Wrasse has distinct chain-like lines along its sides, with females also exhibiting orange and yellow toward the anal fin.s.

A 70 gallon or larger aquarium with a sealed lid, a 2-3 inch sandy bottom to hide under when frightened, and other peaceful wrasses, including its own species, provides a good environment. It will eat fireworms and pyramidellid snails, protecting corals and clams. In addition, it may eat feather dusters, very small wild shrimp, tubeworms, and flatworms. It may also eat parasites off of tank mates.

Richmond's Wrasse diet should include vitamin enriched frozen mysis shrimp, vitamin enriched frozen brine shrimp, and other meaty foods along with a high quality marine flake and marine pellet food.
