The Green Wrasse, also known as the Pastel Green Wrasse or Green Coris is a gorgeous fish that has a stunning pastel green hue. Although it doesn’t have the intricate designs or intricate markings of other Halichoeres Wrasse species, it is a stunning fish. Green Wrasse injects spectacular visual interest into any marine aquarium due to its vivid green hue. It is a lively fish that spends the majority of its time searching looking for tasty tidbits of food to feast on. The Green Wrasse is frequently praised as a great wrasse in a communal aquarium as it is at ease. However, older specimens tend to exhibit aggression toward smaller, more active fish, including wrasses.

The best setup to house the Green Wrasse should be an aquarium with a saltwater tank that has been established for 75 gallons at a minimum with a tight fitting lid. Aquascape with a lot of live rock, offering plenty of spaces that allow your Green Wrasse to investigate, find refuge, or hunt to find food. Make sure you include an extensive area of open substrate and also open areas for swimming. A sandy layer of substrate that is 2-3 inches thick is required to give shelter to the Green Wrasse while it burrows into the sand to spend the evening, or when it is scared. Place the Green Wrasse alongside other tranquil Wrasses, which includes members of the species it is a part of.

The nutrition of Green Wrasse is comprised of benthic marine invertebrates. As they are large and hungry, the Green Wrasse consume fireworms and pyramidellid snails. They are also responsible for safeguarding corals and clams from harmful invertebrates. While this desire to eat invertebrates is advantageous, remember it is the case that Green Wrasse is unable to distinguish between “undesirable” or “desirable” invertebrates. If the chance arises for it, the Green Wrasse is likely to take a bite of “desirable” ornamental insects such as shrimp, fan worms, and other crustaceans found in the aquarium at home. But the Green Wrasse will typically not hurt sessile invertebrates like soft or hard corals.

The nutrition for the Green Wrasse is to comprise various food items, including mysis shrimp that are vitamin-enriched and frozen as well as vitamin-rich brine shrimp that are frozen, as well as other meaty foods in addition to top-quality marine flakes as well as marine pellet food. This Green Wrasse will benefit from frequent, small-sized meals during the course of the day.
