The Pinkface Wrasse is a great choice for any aquarium, as it adds both vivid color and dynamic movement. Not only is this species suitable for both novice and experienced aquarists, but it’s easily distinguishable by its bright green and yellow body and the several, prominent pink stripes extending from its mouth to just behind its eyes. This wrasse is sure to transform your tank and make it a vibrant, lively place. Additionally, its hearty and active nature makes it an ideal inhabitant of your tank.

The Cichlid is an exceptional specimen for an aquarium, as it is hardy, aggressive, and requires plenty of space. It should be the last fish added to the tank, as it will become territorial and harass any new additions. Additionally, it should be housed with other aggressive tank mates, as it will not back down from a battle for territory. This species is quite versatile in its diet, as it has been known to consume mantis shrimp, bristleworms, and other crustaceans, but not corals or live plants.

The Pinkface Wrasse should include a diet that is high in vitamin enriched frozen mysis shrimp, vitamin enriched frozen brine shrimp, and other meaty foods. The diet should also include a quality marine flake and marine pellet food.
