General information regarding Sea Grass Wrasse

Sea Grass Wrasse has proven to be effective in pest control. It is often observed in shades of light and dark greens, brownish red to even black. The Sea Grass Wrasse’s blade-like body permits it to fade into seagrass beds as well as sandy algal flats in mangrove channels and lagoons they call home. They’re also recognized for their free-floating swims and swaying algae to hide them from predators. If you’re in search of an effective method to take care of flatworms, pyramid snails montipora-eating nudibranches, and much more, the mild-mannered Sea Grass Worm has the jaw-crushing teeth as well as the carnivorous appetite to accomplish the job. The Sea Grass Worm should be kept in an aquarium with the bottom of 2-4 inches where it is able to be submerged as it sleeps within the sand. It is possible to keep it in a tank with other fish which are more aggressive or bigger than it is, but it should be kept with passive fish when it is young. Aquariums should also be fitted with an elongated lid to stop them from bursting out.
