    Radiant Wrasses now in stock!

    The Radiant Wrasse is also referred to as the Orangehead Wrasse, Iridis Wrasse, and Radiant Africa Wrasse. The adult has a dark red body with colors becoming lighter at the edges and fins. The head is a bright gold color with the yellow tones continuing along the dorsal fin. The color of the juvenile is more muted.

    A 50 gallon or larger aquarium with a tight-fitting lid, a 2-3 inch sandy bottom to hide under if frightened, and other peaceful wrasses, including its own species, is an acceptable environment. It will eat fireworms and pyramidellid snails, protecting corals and clams. In addition, it may eat feather dusters, wild shrimp, tubeworms, and flatworms. It may also eat parasites off of tank mates.

    The Radiant Wrasse diet should include vitamin enriched frozen mysis shrimp, vitamin enriched frozen brine shrimp, and other meaty foods along with a high quality marine flake and marine pellet food.
