The Marble Wrasse is hardy, active and useful fish. This wrasse prefers to be added to well established aquariums with a sandy substrate and lots of rockwork. The Marble Wrasse likes to submerge itself in the sand when frightened or to sleep. Also make sure any rockwork is secure because this act could disturb the rocks. When feeding them, give them a varied small meaty diet. Feeding them multiple times a day is recommended as they are very active and keeping them full will help keep them away from desirable inverts. In addition, they are known predators of a myriad of unwanted pests like fire worms and pyramidellid snails. The Marble Wrasse prefers to be the only one of its species in the aquarium. They have an adult size of about 11". This wrasse is a great choice for reef aquariums because they will not bother corals/anemones. Their bodies are primarily pearly white or silver with a black checkerboard pattern. Their dorsal fin and tail are bright yellow in color.

ACCLIMATION: Avoid exposing new aquatic life to bright lights after opening the box. Turn off aquarium lights prior to floating aquatic life. Allow the sealed bag with your new fish to float in your aquarium for at least 15 minutes (but no longer than one hour) to ensure the water in the bag matches the temperature in your aquarium. A bacteria booster addition can assist with the addition of new aquatic life. Petco offers free water testing in store to determine if your water is safe for the addition of new aquatic life. DIET: A well-balanced diet consists of a variety of flakes, pellets, freeze-dried and frozen foods, depending on the species. FEEDING: Feed sparingly and no more than fish can eat in 1-2 minutes. Overfeeding can quickly foul the water, especially in smaller aquariums.
