The Dragon Wrasse exhibits green to maroon colors with an awesome white prominent dorsal spine towards the head when young. As they mature, they will lose the dorsal spines on their head, and become more of a rusty brown coloration. The Dragon Wrasse shows very unique behaviours as they mvoe rocks around to look for crustaceans to eat. They also require a thick sandbed as they will bury themselves to sleep. A lid is needed to prevent them from jumping out of the tank.
