The New Guinea Tamarin Wrasse is a moderately-sized wrasse that is striking in its simplicity. The New Guinea Tamarin Wrasse has an elongated body with dorsal and anal fins that extend almost the entire length of the fish. Towards the rear of both of these fins is a large deep blue eyespot that helps in protecting the fish as a juvenile. They are primarily white in colouration with many vibrant bright blue dots. The top front half of the fish is bluish-black in colouration, which lends to its common name. 

The New Guinea Tamarin Wrasse requires an aquarium with plenty of live rock for hiding and foraging for food. As juveniles, the New Guinea Tamarin Wrasse may be kept in numbers but may turn aggressive towards each other when fully grown. In the wild the New Guinea Tamarin Wrasse feeds on benthic invertebrates and may pick at desirable fanworms and ornamental crustaceans in the home aquarium. However, the New Guinea Tamarin Wrasse will typically not harm sessile invertebrates including soft or stony corals.

The New Guinea Tamarin 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.
