A sand bed and Live Rock should be provided for all Wrasses. They will bury themselves in the sand to sleep or hide. Live Rock provides numerous small life forms that the Wrasses consider a tasty treat as well as another place to hide when they feel threatened. A 75 gallon or larger aquarium, either fish-only or reef, with a shaded area is recommended. Reef Safe Wrasses will not pick on corals or invertebrates, making them an ideal fish for the reef aquarium. These wrasses do like to jump, so a tight fitting canopy is necessary.
When first placed into the aquarium live saltwater feeder shrimp can be used to help it start eating. Once eating the live feeder shrimp start feeding a varied diet that includes vitamin enriched frozen prepared foods for carnivores, minced table shrimp, and a good flake food. Feed at least twice a day.
