This vibrant flasher wrasse makes a fascinating display animal. Males will behave aggressively toward consexuals and larger individuals will chase congeners that are smaller or introduced after the flasher has become established.
Habitat: This species is found in small groups in sheltered reefs with rich coral and algae along upper parts of slopes.
Feeding: Meaty foods, including finely shredded frozen seafood, mysid shrimp, frozen preparations, pigment-enriched flake food, and Cyclop-eeze.
Aquarium Compatibility: Ideal tankmates for this and other flasher wrasses include more passive anthias, assessors (Assessor species), gobies, dartfishes, blennies, small fairy wrasses, and other smaller, more peaceful labrid species. They have been known to fall victim to predatory crustaceans (e.g., large hermit crabs, cancrid crabs), elephant ear polyps (Amplexidiscus fenestrafer), and carpet anemones (Stichodactyla species).
Feed at least twice a day preferably more often.
