Overview

The Melanurus Wrasse, Halichoeres melanurusis also known as the Tail-spot Wrasse. These fish come from the Western Pacific Ocean. Females have a silvery-blue body with horizontal yellow stripes and an eyespot on the dorsal fin and at the base of the tail. Males are green in color and have blue, red and yellow stripes.

Melanurus Wrasses can reach up to 5 inches and require an aquarium of at least 50 gallons with plenty of live rock and a fine sand bed at least 4 inches in depth. They do enjoy having small pieces of rocks to ‘play’ with when searching for food. When first introduced to a new aquarium, it is not uncommon, for them to stay buried for a three to six days.

They are considered reef safe “with caution” because they may pick on smaller fish and invertebrates such as snails.

Only keep one male per aquarium.

Feeding

These wrasses are carnivores and require a diet rich in meaty foods, such as brine and mysis shrimp, high-quality frozen foods, pieces of fresh seafood, and flake and pellet foods. They should be fed twice daily.
