Canary wrasse

 
The Yellow Wrasse is also referred to as the Golden Rainbowfish, Golden Wrasse, Yellow Coris, or Canary Wrasse. It is golden-yellow with a black eyespot on the dorsal fin. - A 50 gallon or larger aquarium with a sealed lid, a 2-3 inch sandy bottom to hide under when frightened, and other peaceful Wrasses, including its own species, provides a good environment. It will eat fireworms and pyramidellid snails, protecting corals and clams. In addition, it may eat feather dusters, wild shrimp, tubeworms, and flatworms. It may also eat parasites off of tank mates. - - The Yellow 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 -

Very Hearty Fish

Comments A very flashy fish that will eat just about anything you throw in the tank. When I feed my tangs a bit of nori, the Canary will make sure he gets his licks in! It also likes the mixes of different food I put in there like flakes, pellets, and frozen foods. Mine loves to chase my hand around when I've got my hand in there, and it also loves chasing my cleaning magnet around. He gets along with "all" of my other fish, but from time-to-time my Christmas Wrasse will try to get 'em. This is a very tough fish. When I transfered all of my livestock from one tank to the other, the Canary hid in the sand. I forgot about it, and it was found 2 days later in the old tank (hardly any water in it, no flow, and a lot of detritus)! I simply put it in the new tank and it acted like nothing ever happened! I don't recommend doing that, but you get the point. :)


Liked about it 1) Great coloration, 2) Hearty Fish, 3) Great appetite!


Didn't like 1) Will tear up the pod population so you may want to rethink that Mandarin you always wanted, 2) Very difficult fish to catch (should you need to)

Awesome wrasse, highly recommended

Comments The canary wrasse is a great reef addition. While often labeled as not reef-safe, that's mostly because they're apt to eat worms and pods. Unless they're housed with ornamental worms, they're very unlikely to bother corals or other fish (even those in the same genus). They get to about 5 inches as adults at most, and can be housed in tanks over 40 gallons or so.


Liked about it Great color, very docile, will help keep pest populations in check. In my experience, they can also be housed in groups, so if desired I'd recommend housing more than one in a tank.


Didn't like They do prefer a sand bed, so they may be more easily spooked if in a barebottom tank. They also have a tendency to jump, so ensuring your tank has a proper cover is a must.

Thoughts on Canary wrasse

Comments Great wrasse for a reef tank. These wrasse have been kept by some reefs in a pack of 2 with no problems. Canary wrasse can be a little shy. Reason stating that is due to upon moving rapidly towards the tank they might run and hide in the sand or hide behid a piece of rock. I feed mine formula 2 pellets and frozen mysis shrimp. During the night or when the lights are out they will hide in the sand. As they mature they will display a dim lime green and pink florescence on there face. the tails of the Canary wrasse also gives of a very dim pink florescence.


Liked about it Great reef fish, due to they will not attack your snails or hermit crabs. The Canary wrasse mainly swims in all parts of the reef. They are not aggressive they are highly friendly(hardly if you wish to label). The bright yellow color will brighten up any reef in my thoughts


Didn't like Can be frightened very easy. Alot of the times when I approach the reef it hides behind a rock and looks at a corner of its eye. But upon food droping into the reef it dashes out begins to eat.

Cheap but in a good way!

Comments These are relatively inexpensive wrasses and can be kept in small groups. They are not aggressive and add movement and color to the tank. They have a wonderful yellow color and are probably one of the most peaceful wrasses that you can buy. They can be shy so do not become alarmed if you dont see them when you first put them in the tank.


Liked about it Color, peaceful, typical wrasse movment in tank, hardy.


Didn't like N/A
