Radiant wrasse M/L

SKU: AO6407Categories: Saltwater Fish, Wrasse

The Radiant Wrasse, also known as the Orangehead Wrasse, Iridis Wrasse, and Radiant Africa Wrasse, has a dark red body that becomes lighter at the edges and fins. The adult has a bright gold head that extends along the dorsal fin, while the juvenile is more subdued in color. To keep this fish in a home aquarium, a tight-fitting lid and a 2-3 inch sandy bottom to hide under if frightened is suitable. It can live peacefully with other peaceful wrasses, including its own species, and will protect corals and clams from fireworms and pyramidellid snails. However, it may prey on smaller ornamental shrimp and crabs, as well as eat feather dusters, wild shrimp, tubeworms, and flatworms. It may also eat parasites off of tank mates. The Radiant Wrasse should be fed a diet that includes vitamin-enriched frozen mysis shrimp, frozen brine shrimp, and other meaty foods, along with high-quality marine flake and pellet food.
