Males can be kept if females are introduced before or in the same manner. They are known to jump, therefore an appropriate canopy that is a tight fit is suggested.

Flasher wrasses must be fed at least two to three times per day to maintain their weight.

A quality protein skimmer and Live Sand will help decrease the number of dissolved organics that could result from the more frequent feeding schedule.
