The McCosker's Flasher Wrasse has exquisite coloration, hardiness and high activity levels that make them very desirable in the aquarium hobby. When beginning a new aquarium, the McCosker's Wrasse can live in groups and should be the fish added last because they tend to be harassed by other fish, furthermore the female should be added before the males for the same reason. It is strongly advised that the aquarium has s tight fitting lid because they are known to jump out. Their diet should include frozen meaty foods like brine shrimp, marine pellets and flakes. This wrasse has a high metabolism so they should be fed several small meals rather than two large meals a day. They have a small adult size of 3" which is another reason why they are so desirable. Their coloration is primarily red/orange with blue horizontal stripes and a yellowish underside. Their fins are an array of colors and patterns. Their elongated dorsal fin is red/orange with yellow.

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.
