Green Wrasse



 Thumbnail

The Green Wrasse is also referred to as the Pastel Green Wrasse or Green Coris. The body color is a most attractive, pastel green without extravagant markings.
A 70 gallon or larger aquarium with a tight-fitting lid, a 2-3 inch sandy bottom to hide under if frightened, and other peaceful wrasses, including its own species, provides a good environment.

It will eat fireworms and pyramidellid snails protecting corals and clams. In addition, it may eat feather dusters, wild shrimp, tubeworms, and flatworms. Regular feedings should include a variety of prepared and live meaty foods such as feeder shrimps, flaked foods, and marine fish.
