Husbandry

Fowler & Bean, 1928

The Orangefin wrasse inhabits coral reefs or shallow rocky areas at depths of 5 to 25 meters, these fishes are collected for the trade, even if it is not common.

Halichoeres melanochir occurs in groups, pairs or solitary and feed on different benthic zooplankton.

Juvenile wrasses are similar to Halichoeres marginatus and is distinguished from that by the orange ventral fin which it has throughout life.
