A layer of fine sand substrate with a depth of around 2 inches is vital to the yellowchest Wrasse since it will dig into the sand for sleep or seek refuge when it is feeling threatened. Avoid using crushed coral or any other coarse substrates as the Yellowchest Wrasse has a low survival rate in aquariums with these hard substrates. A good aquarium will include ample live rocks.

As young fish they can be kept in a group but be aware that they can show aggression towards one another when mature.

The diet of the Yellowchest Wrasse is comprised of benthic invertebrates. As such a huge hungry Yellowchest Wrasse might eat ornamental invertebrates like shrimp, fan worms, and other crustaceans that are found in the aquarium at home. However, the Yellowchest Wrasse generally does not harm sessile invertebrates, including the soft and stony corals. In the aquarium of the home, its diet for Yellowchest Wrasse must include an array of items like mysis shrimp with vitamin enriched frozen brine shrimp and other meaty meals together with premium marine food items like marine pellets and flakes.
