Red Tail Tamarin Wrasse also known as the Redtail Hawaiian Wrasse, Psychedelic Wrasse or Redtailed Wrasse are found from the Hawaiian and Midway islands.
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 Tail Tamarin Wrasse has a black body covered with varying sized white dots. The tail is white with a red band at the end. The male has a more colourful head with unique facial markings which differ from the females. When courting, the male will display an increased colour intensity.
It requires an aquarium with a 2 inch layer of live sand in which to bury itself, and a secure lid to keep it from jumping out of the tank. A single male can be kept with a group of females that are introduced prior to or at the same time as the male.
The Red Tail Tamarin Wrasse may be very difficult to adjust to new surroundings, and should be offered a variety of enriched meaty foods such as frozen Mysis shrimp and frozen brine shrimp.
