The Bleeding Heart Wrasse features an attractive sage green body colouration beautifully decorated with irregular scribbles of pink. This colouration allows the Bleeding Heart Wrasse to blend into weedy or algae-covered reef surfaces where it is commonly found especially in areas of strong surge. The Bleeding Heart Wrasse is one of the several species where the juvenile and female stages are nearly identical.

The Bleeding Heart Wrasse is a burrowing wrasse well adapted to feeding on benthic invertebrates. As such, the ideal aquascape should include an open area where the Bleeding Heart Wrasse has easy access to fine, sandy substrate. A depth of at least 2-3 inches provides the Pearly Wrasse the appropriate refuge if frightened. A tight-fitting lid is also recommended. An established aquarium 90 gallons or larger stocked with other passive tank mates makes an ideal environment for the Bleeding Heart Wrasse.

The Bleeding Heart Wrasse will eat fireworms and pyramidellid snails, protecting corals and clams which it will not bother. However, larger specimens may prey on smaller ornamental shrimp and crabs. In addition, it may eat feather dusters, small shrimp, tubeworms, and flatworms. It may also eat parasites off of tank mates when young. The Bleeding Heart 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.
