Description

The Yellow Coris Wrasse, Halichoeres chrysus, has definitely earned a place in the aquarium hobby as a great reef fish that’s quite useful for pest control. I’ve brought a few in for special orders, which is why they’re here in inventory.  Over the short term, I’ve had good luck keeping juveniles in groups; this would be a great candidate species for a home breeder who’s looking to try his luck at breeding a wrasse, given Kevin Barden’s success breeding the related Melanurus Wrasse, Halichoeres melanurus, at Rising Tide / University of Florida Tropical Aquaculture Lab (TAL).

Halichoeres chrysus-Yellow Wrasse

Initially I hadn’t gotten a good photo of the ones on hand, so I included this great creative commons image of a more marture one, showing the orange and green striping they get in the face and loss of dorsal spots once they’re a male.
