Red Pygmy Possum Wrasse

Also known as a Pygmy Possum Wrasse.

The reclusive Red Pygmy Possum Wrasse is a reef safe wrasse. Rather than burrowing, the Possum Wrasses tend to hide within the rockwork or in crevices. Best kept with other community fish, the Red Pygmy Possum Wrasse will leave its tank mates alone, except for the smallest shrimp and tiniest snails. Live Rock is a must for this species as they will graze upon the many lifeforms found within live rock. Because of this, small tanks under 50 gallons are difficult for this fish to inhabit. Feeding this species in a smaller tank requires very frequent feedings. A peaceful and active fish, a tight fitting lid is highly recommended to prevent jumping.
