Bluehead wrasse will grow to six inches and tends to be territorial and defensive so these wrasse need their own space among rock formations. These wrasse are hardy and safe enough in most aquariums, and affordable! Though the bluehead wrasse will eat unwanted bristleworms and mantis shrimp, the wrasse leave coral and microalgae alone.
