Many wrasses are completely aggressive towards their conspecifics (Please inform beforehand about individual- or group housing of animals) where they are otherwise very easy to maintain.
Feeding the wrasses
Since they tirelessly search for microorganisms in the reef, few wrasses are natural predators of plagues known to us: The six strioed-wrasse for example should prevent the Acropora-turbellaria. Wrasses feed mainly on microorganisms and zooplankton which they hunt in the reef or even by digging in the sand. So food like Mysis, Artemia or Goldpods are suitable in the aquarium. also shell fragments.
Also known is the cleaner wrasse (mostly Labroides dimidiatus) of parasites (mainly copepods and isopods) removed from the skin of other fishes. Therefore it is very careful and should face enough „customers“ at all times since otherwise it can be very overpowering with individual fishes and this is put under stress. All wrasses are known that they are very happy and jump joyfully (especially at night) and can jump out of the tanks. Please provide a spring cover!
