This is a great reef wrasse for most aquaria, reaching a max size of 6”. Melanurus wrasses accept well and eat all types of frozen/dry foods. Please note that: a) melanurus wrasses do bury themselves for defensive purposes, so do not be alarmed if they go missing for a few days, and b) you need a very tight-fitted lid for the tank. Wrasses may fight with other wrasses, be cautious when mixing.
