Details

The Tanaka Possum Wrasse is relatively new in the aquarium trade. It has a reddish-orange body with four thin white bars and two black eyespots above and below its tail.

They are a very secretive species that will hide out in caves or under rocks being very cautious to venture out. The diet of this wrasse is small benthic invertebrates in the wild. In the home aquarium they will gladly eat meaty frozen food such as brine shrimp or plankton. A diet consisting of prepared food such as pellet food or flake food is also recommended in addition to the frozen food.

When choosing tankmates remember its timid nature and do not choose fish that will constantly cause the wrasse to hide such as large predatory fish or other hyperactive wrasses.
