Flasher wrasses need to be fed three or four times a day to keep their weight. Because they eat Zooplankton and do not often grab at living organisms on rocks, they won’t flourish in the reef tank if they’re fed less frequently. The Yellowfin Flasher Wrasse diet must include vitamin-rich frozen mysis shrimp, vitamin-enriched brine shrimp that are frozen, as well as other meaty foods, in addition to a high quality marine, and marine pellet diet. A high-quality protein skimmer, as well as live sand, will help decrease the number of dissolved organics due to this feeding routine that is more regular.
