The Lineatus Wrasse is an uncommon species of wrasse native to the Great Barrier Reef. It displays a dazzling array of colors ranging from yellows, oranges, pinks, purples, and blues arranged in horizontal stripes on the top and bottom of the body and face and speckling in the center.
The Lineatus Wrasse grows to about 5", and is an active swimmer requiring a tank of 90 gallons or larger. As with most fairy wrasses, once acclimated, they're generally a hardy and easy to keep species. They are reef safe, and usually won't bother invertebrates like many wrasse species. Unlike some wrasse don't require sand, preferring to sleep in a slime cocoon at night tucked into the rock. A well fitted cover should be provided to prevent this species from jumping.
Lineatus Wrasse are carnivores, and should be provided with a diet rich in meaty frozen foods.
