The Seagrass Wrasse is an elegant fish that can range from green to brown in coloration. Their blade like body allows them to camouflage with the seagrass beds in the wild. A thick sandbed is recommended as they will bury themselves to sleep. A lid is also needed as they can easily jump out. This wrasse is helpful to eat pests in the aquarium, but is not reef safe as they will eat live crustaceans.
