Sea Grass Wrasse (Novaculichthys macrolepidotus) 

Also Known As:

Emerald Wrasse
Green Dragon Wrasse


The Sea Grass Wrasse is known foreating flat worms, pyramid snails, montipora eating nudibranches. They are relatively peaceful and like a sandy bottom to bury themselves.  It is not uncommon for larger specimens to harrass smaller tankmates and eat small crabs and shrimp.

Always have a cover on a tank that houses wrasses as they can jump out of uncovered aquariums.

These wrasses require meaty frozen foods such as brine and mysis as well as high quality dry foods.
