Lunare wrasses (not reef safe)
Are often blue and green with lavender markings on the face and fins. The tail has a yellow center. Juveniles tend to have paler coloration. They are often found in small groups with one dominant male. They need good water movement, good water quality, and plenty of swimming room. Lunar wrasses are very active during the day and sleep at night. Dominant males can be territorial and aggressive but non-dominant Lyretail wrasses are generally peaceful. They should not be kept with invertebrates as they may be destructive, especially as they grow. They will voraciously eat most meaty frozen foods.
