The Paddlefin Wrasse wrasse is a large, beautiful, and active fish with a blue head, a red-purple body, and a yellow band in between. This Wrasse is not reef safe as it will eat crustaceans. A lid is strongly recommended as this fish can jump. Do not mix with other Thalassoma Wrasses. This fish needs a large, semi-aggressive fish only aquarium and a diet that consists mainly of meaty foods.
