Aquarium Suitability: Very Hardy

Captive Care: This fish is a fun fish to have in most aquariums as it is constantly foraging on the live rock for small crustaceans. It is a smaller, less aggressive species than the Eight line wrasse and is suited for a community tank. These are fantastic picks for Frag tanks as well. However, this beautiful fish will act aggressively toward peaceful wrasses and shy, inoffensive species. The Six Line will thrive in a tank with numerous hiding places.
