The Sixline Lined Wrasse is both beautiful and active. With its six distinct, horizontal blue lines overlaid against an orange body, this member of the Labridae family brings a zip of colour to any marine reef aquarium. This is especially true when a courting male Sixline Lined Wrasse displays an increased colour intensity. However, it is the active darting amongst rock outcroppings and corals that most attracts the Sixline Lined Wrasse to any onlooker.

The Sixline Lined Wrasse forages amongst corals and rocks for foods, mainly keeping to itself. In the home aquarium, the Sixline Lined Wrasse requires a peaceful environment with a generous supply of hiding places and live rock on which they can forage for food. Here, the Sixline Lined Wrasse will search for live foods in the form of small crustaceans such as pyramidellid snails (clam parasites), urchins, and commensal flatworms. The Sixline Lined Wrasse is also known to feed on unwanted pests on live rock, such as bristleworms.

Though generally peaceful, the Sixline Lined Wrasse may act aggressively towards peaceful Wrasses and other easily-intimidated fish, especially if inadequately fed or if its habitat is void of places in which it can hide. 

The Sixline Lined 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.
