The Eight Line Flasher Wrasse (Paracheilinus Octotaenia), also known as the Eight-line Fairy Wrasse, originates from the waters of the Red Sea.
The Eightline Flasher Wrasse is a remarkably colored wrasse featuring different hues of yellow, orange and red. The distinguishing feature of this fish are the eight striking blue lines that run horizontally along the length of the fish. The color of the female is subdued when comparing it to the brilliance of the male. The male during courting will display its brilliantly colored fins in an attempt to persuade its mate. Colors may vary depending on the fish's mood.They may grow up to 4’’ in length.
The Eightline Flasher Wrasse is a very peaceful, active fish that will bring both color and activity to a fish-only or reef aquarium of 55 gallons or larger. Provide an environment with a great deal of live rock so they can hide and scavenge.In addition, they are known predators of a myriad of unwanted pests like bristle worms and flatworms. These wrasses like to jump, so a tight fitting canopy is recommended.
They are generally peaceful but may display aggression towards members of the same species. They will not bother any corals or invertebrates making them a perfect fish for the reef aquarium. A single male can be kept with a group of females that is introduced prior to or at the same time as the male.
These Eight Line Flasher Wrasse are carnivores and should be fed a diet consisting of vitamin enriched frozen mysis shrimp, frozen brine shrimp, and other meaty foods along with high-quality marine flakes and pellet food.
