Captive Care: Wow, now that is a bright fish! Not only are the Canary wrasse beautiful but they are a fantastic addition to any reef that could have any pest flatworms. They cruse the reef tank all day hunting and picking away at the rocks. Being such an active fish, they will add a lot of movement to any tank that needs a flash of color. These very peaceful fish can be housed with just about all other Halichoeres wrasses. These fish do prefer to have a sand bottom as they are sand diving wrasse.
