Sixline Wrasse - Pseudocheilinus hexataenia - Small/Medium
The Sixline Wrasse has six bright, orange, horizontal lines over a body that is blue toward the dorsal side and fades to light purple on the ventral side. The eye is red with two horizontal white lines and there is a black spot with blue edging on the upper caudal peduncle.
Sixline Wrasses are peaceful toward other fish but will not tolerate other Six-line wrasses or similar species. They are ideal for reef aquariums. Sixline wrasses are easy to feed and will accept most frozen, live, and flake foods. They are also well known bristleworms controllers and can help control the populations of these pests.
