Very rare fish, only suitable for advance aquarist due to how difficult they are to care for. Make sure you get a well quarantined fish. They are picky eaters and tend to only eat live foods at the start. When newely introduced they tend to hide under the substrate often. They will slowly get more confident and be out more. Also be aware that they tend to jump often, so a secure lid is a MUST otherwise the fish will eventually go carpet surfing and probably die. Should not be kept with similar colour fish or any other species of wrasse. I would strongly advise against any new fishkeeper getting one of these fish. There are easier and better looking wrasses out there.
