Overview

The Yellowchest Twist Wrasse from Fiji is a moderately sized wrasse that is beautifully colored. They have an elongated body with a dorsal and anal fin that extends almost the entire length of the fish. Towards the rear of both of these fins is a large deep blue eyespot that helps in protecting the fish as a juvenile. They are primarily dark blue to purple in coloration with many vibrant bright blue dots. The bottom front half of the fish is bright yellow or gold in coloration which lends to its common name.

The Yellowchest Twist Wrasse requires a 120 gallon or larger aquarium with a sandy bottom into which it will burrow to sleep, or if it is threatened. Do not attempt to keep the Yellowchest Twist Wrasse with a crushed coral or similar substrate as they have a poor survival rate on such substrates. The ideal aquarium will also have plenty of live rock for hiding and foraging for food. They may be kept in numbers as juveniles, but may turn aggressive towards each other when fully grown. They should not be kept with invertebrates as they will pick at fanworms, ornamental crustaceans, and tridacnid clams.

The Yellowchest Twist Wrasse diet should include vitamin enriched frozen mysis shrimp, vitamin enriched frozen brine shrimp, and other meaty foods along with a high quality marine flake and marine pellet food.

Approximate Purchase Size: 2-1/2" to 3-1/2"
