Curator's Note
Wrasses are known to jump from aquariums. Be sure to have some sort of covering with no large open holes that they can escape from. Large specimens are more likely to jump than juveniles.
Description
The Blue Head Wrasse Wrasse has unusual blue and green markings and demands attention as it zips through the water column in a graceful display. The Blue Head Wrasse, like all Thalassoma genus, requires a large open water column in which to move about during the day. At night it will need several places in the rockwork to hide so it can sleep, it does not require a sandbed. However, they will also gladly consume bristleworms, and mantis shrimps. Care should be taken to not add this fish to aquariums that will house very small fish as they will eat these as well. Keep with other moderately aggressive fish.
Diet
Feed a varied diet consisting of large chunks of meaty foods. These foods include krill, raw table shrimp, squid, clam and mussel.
