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 Red Breast Maori Wrasse is sure to drop jaws the next time your reefer friends stop by. While its size alone is more than impressive, the Red Breast Maori Wrasse boasts six or seven white vertical stripes against a reddish-brown body, with a splendid yellow-orange pop of colour surrounding the pectoral fin.
While the Red Breast Maori Wrasse can grow rather large, they are generally a shy species and should only be housed in an appropriately large aquarium with other non-aggressive fishes to avoid being bullied. They are known to move sand around in search of food and will eat hard shell inverts and sometimes small fish.
The Red Breast Maori Wrasse is commonly found roaming alone in lagoons and inner reefs, along reef edges and rubble piles, and can often be seen resting on the sea bed. Feed a prepared plankton diet to mimic their common natural diet.
