As one of the more colourful reef safe fish, the Carpenter’s Flasher Wrasse is a popular choice amongst reef keepers. It will not harm invertebrates or corals that it is housed with.
It is one of he more peaceful Wrasses, and can do well with small groups of it’s own kind, if they are all introduced at the same time. It will thrive in a community reef aquarium.
They are friendly fish, and not shy. They will often greet the aquarist at the front of the tank and have been known to peck food out of the aquarists’ hands.
