The African Clown Wrasse juveniles are have a reddish brown body colour with white bands over its back edged in thick dark margins. Adults are a deep reddish green with green markings on the face.

Juveniles of this species can be confused with the Red Clown Wrasse (C.gaimard) or Queen Clown Wrasse (C.formosa) however junviles of this species are darker in colour with darker black edges to its white bands.

The African Clown Wrasse requires a larger aquarium with a sandy bottom into which it will burrow to sleep, or if it is threatened. Do not attempt to keep the African Clown Wrasse on crushed coral or similar substrate as they have a poor survival rate on such substrates. When very small, African Clown Wrasse are safe with almost any fish that will not eat them, but as they grow, they can become destructive. They should not be kept with invertebrates.

The African Clown 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.
