Black Tail Tamarin Wrasse also known as the Lined Wrasse or Whitedashed Wrasse are found from the Red Sea south to Natal, South Africa and east to Bali, Indonesia.
Livestock arrives in and out of stock very regularly, depending upon availability of the item from the source. The more rare and expensive items are often difficult to hold in stock, and can take time to source, so we generally require a deposit to locate and purchase the extremely rare items
The Black Tail Tamarin Wrasse has black and white stripes running along its body, the caudail fin is white with a black end. Males have blue lines and a yellow tail with a black end.
It requires an aquarium with a 2 inch layer of live sand in which to bury itself. It is a jumper, so a secure lid on the aquarium is required.
The Black Tail Tamarin Wrasse may be very difficult to keep in an aquarium due to its feeding habits. When first introduced into the aquarium, live feeder shrimp should be used to entice this fish to eat. It eats very small invertebrates (amphiopods) that grow on live rock. The diet should also include live, small feeder shrimps (brine, mysid) and finely chopped marine meats.
