The Gold Banded Possum Wrasse has an arrowhead like shape and is mostly red/orange in colour with yellow vertical stripes when in its juvenile colouration. As the fish matures the fish will darken to a deep rustish colouration. The male and female of this species are very similarly coloured, but when courting, the male will display increased colour intensity. Colours may vary depending on the fish's mood.

The Gold Banded Possum Wrasse is a very peaceful, active fish that will bring both colour and activity to a fish-only or reef aquarium of 10 gallons or larger. They will not bother any corals or invertebrates making them a perfect fish for the reef aquarium. A single male can be kept with a group of females that is introduced prior to or at the same time as the male. These wrasses like to jump, so a tight fitting canopy is recommended.

The Gold Banded Possum 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.
