    this wrasse is in the same family as the Banana or yellow wrasse and it is very similar in character. I have never kept one so I have no personal experiance with them

    I got one very nice looking wrasse but, don't expect your snails to be around long mine eats them as fast as I put them in. On the other hand if you ever had nudi problems he's the guy you want. Checks every coral over when added to tank.
    When I change tanks he will not go to the new tank.
