Mystery Wrasse are an uncommon and unique species native to coral reefs in the West to Central Pacific. The center of their bodies is bubblegum pink with several hairline thin white vertical lines. The head and tail areas are yellow, with striking pink and purple swirling over the yellow head and a false eye spot on the tail.
The Mystery Wrasse grows to about 4.75", 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.
Mystery Wrasse are carnivores, and should be provided with a diet rich in meaty frozen foods.
