The Golden Rhomboidalis Wrasse is an exquisite species that originates solely from the Marshall Islands. With a gold body and vibrant blue head, they are marked with a maze-like series of lines and a diamond-shaped tail, making them a truly captivating species. They are usually found close to the substrate within the sand and rubble zones of the reef. Unfortunately, this species is quite rare in the industry, highlighting the importance of conservation for our marine wildlife. To ensure their long-term survival, we must all take part in protecting their natural habitats.

The Golden Rhomboidalis Wrasse is an excellent addition to any fish-only or reef aquarium, as it has a peaceful disposition and does not interact with corals or invertebrates. This wrasse will be most comfortable in an aquarium of 90 gallons or larger, and should be provided with a shaded area and a tight fitting canopy to prevent jumping. Additionally, they are known to be hardy and resilient, making them a great choice for the reef aquarium.

This type of diet is important for both juvenile and adult wrasses.
