The Jade Green Wrasse is also referred to as the Pastel
Green Wrasse or Green Coris. The body color is a most attractive, pastel green
without extravagant markings.
A 75 gallon or larger aquarium with a tight-fitting lid,
a 2-3 inch sandy bottom to hide under if frightened, and other peaceful
wrasses, including its own species, provides a good environment.
It will eat fireworms and pyramidellid snails protecting
corals and clams. In addition, it may eat feather dusters, wild shrimp,
tubeworms, and flatworms. The Green 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.
