Husbandry

Fowler, 1908

A greenish wrasse with pinkish to red stripes that break up into spots on the rear of the body, about eight narrow pale vertical pale bars, a black yellow-rimmed spot on the rear of the gill cover, and a small black basal spot on the rear of the dorsal fin.

Juveniles are pale overall with a broad dark stripe and a series of narrow white vertical bars along the sides, and a small black spot on the rear of the dorsal fin.
Found on coral and rocky reefs, inhabiting deep gutters, reef margins and open weedy, rubble and sandy areas.
Likely to feed on micro-zoobenthos.
