The Neon Wrasse, also known as the Yellowhead Wrasse, is one of the easiest wrasses to identify in every color phase. Adults have a golden to yellow head, a black vertical bar behind the tip of the pectoral fin, merging with a broad black area on the upper side, continuing to the top of the caudal peduncle and upper caudal fin and blue underneath. Juveniles are yellow with a turquoise-blue stripe along their sides.
A carnivore, the Neon Wrasse requires regular feedings that include a variety of prepared and live meaty foods, such as feeder shrimps, flaked foods, and marine fish. To acclimate them to eating prepared foods, start with a food that will sink to the bottom that the Neon Wrasse can consume from there.
