The Banded Possum Wrasse is a small fish that ranges from Indonesia. It has an arrowhead like shape and is mostly red/orange in color with yellow vertical stripes when in its juvenile coloration. As the fish matures, it will darken to a deep rustish color. The male and female of this species are very similarly colored, but when courting, the male will display increased color intensity. Colors may vary depending on the fish’s mood.
