Wrasses

Wrasses are very common in sea – after gobies they are the class of fishes having the most number of species. Lots of these wrasses are also suitable to be kept in the aquarium and in the recent years, a new hype has been developed around these beautiful and very often useful marine fishes. Wrasses are mostly active in the reef structures underway and constantly searches for the live rock after edible microorganisms. Few wrasse-species are also suitable for the beginners and initial stocking, so for example the class Halichoeres or even the known six striped –wrasse Pseudocheilinus hexataenia which can be found in lots of marine tanks. Due to the small final size lots of wrasses are suitable for small tanks under 500l in case of which they should be structured properly. Wrasses are lively swimmers while the six striped-wrasse very aggressive. Rare but incredibly beautiful to look at are e.g. Macropharyngodon (Diamond-wrasse) and Macropharyngodon meleagris (Leopardenjunker) or even the not so easily kept Cirrhilabrus species and Choerodon fasciatus.

Wrasses

Beautiful and agile!

"Often good to keep them solo! "

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.

Cleaner wrasses

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!
