The Goldbar Wrasse is aptly named for the subdued golden bar that divides its body from its head. Its olive-gold head, veined in contrasting brilliant blue, makes this member of the Labridae family a prized addition to almost any home marine aquarium. The Goldbar Wrasse has an appealing purple-hazed, bluish body that adds visual interest as this active fish swims amongst live rock.
Care needs to be taken, however, to house Thalassoma hebraicum with fish of equal temperament. Though most will not attack coral or live plants, many will become territorial and may harass new additions to your aquarium. To help prevent this, the Goldbar Wrasse should be one of the last fish to be added to your system.
