  • Description
  • The Blue Flasher Wrasse is a very beautiful and active wrasse. Blue Flasher Wrasses have elongated dorsal fins and are mostly red in color. Male Blue Flasher Wrasses can be very brightly colored with various electric blue hues on their upper half. During courting male Blue Flasher Wrasses can change colors rather fast, giving them their flasher name.

    Blue Flasher Wrasses reach a maximum adult size of around 3 inches and need to be kept in tanks that are at least 55 gallons. Blue Flasher Wrasses are fairly strong jumpers and need to be kept in tanks with a tight fitting lid so they cannot jump out if spooked. Blue Flasher Wrasses are peaceful fish and shouldn't bother other fish, coral or inverts in your tank. This makes the Blue Flasher Wrasse a great fish for reef tanks.

    Blue Flasher Wrasses do extremely well in pairs or small groups. Groups need to be made up of all females or one male with multiple females since male Blue Flasher Wrasses will be aggressive towards other males. With the lack of a male, the dominant female Blue Flasher Wrasse will turn male. Blue Flasher Wrasses need to be kept in tanks with a good amount of live rock, since they will hide and sleep in your rock work.

    Blue Flasher Wrasses are carnivores and need to be fed a diet rich in meaty foods. Foods like mysis and brine shrimp, high quality meaty frozen foods and high quality flake and pellet foods will keep your Blue Flasher Wrasse healthy and happy.
