Christmas Wrasse

SKU: AO3411Categories: Saltwater Fish

The Christmas Wrasse, which is also known as the Red-Lined or Biocellate Wrasse in the aquarium hobby, is a remarkable fish recognized for its vibrant coloration. Female Biocellate Wrasse possess eye spots called ocelli on their dorsal fins, which are absent in males. Males, on the other hand, have reddish stripes along their green/orange bodies and a U-shaped mark between the anal fin and the base of the caudal fin. To keep this species in captivity, it is advisable to have a 50-gallon or larger aquarium with a secure lid, a sandy substrate of at least 2-3 inches, and peaceful wrasse tank mates, including other Christmas Wrasses. Feeding Christmas Wrasse can include fireworms and pyramidellid snails, which protect corals and clams, as well as other invertebrates like feather dusters, wild shrimp, tubeworms, and flatworms, and also parasitic organisms that reside on tank mates. It’s important to provide a nutritious diet, including vitamin-enriched frozen mysis shrimp and brine shrimp, along with other meaty foods, high-quality marine flake and pellet food. They are reef safe
