This Hardwicke Wrasse is sometimes referred to as the Sixbar Wrasse or the Hardwick’s Wrasse. When it is an adult it features an ethereal blue body that has six horizontal dark body stripes, and a distinctive “daisy” design around the eyes, made from a variety of pastel shades.

It is recommended to keep it in a large tank of 90 gallons or more, with bigger, more aggressive tank mates and plenty of rocks to use for hiding. It can become territorial and attack any new members of the community, which is why it should be added at the end of the aquarium. It can be kept in a pair if the aquarium is 125 gallons or more. It can consume bristleworms and mantis shrimp. It doesn’t consume live living corals or plants.

The diet of the marine fish is comprised of crustaceans, fish motile invertebrates, and worms. The diet of aquarium fish should consist of a variety of feeder shrimp, marine flesh, frozen meaty dishes, and flaked food items.
