The Yellow Wrasse, a.k.a. Yellow Coris or Canary Wrasse, is a flashy little fish with its bright yellow coloring. These fish are usually available in their juvenile form which can include small black dots along their dorsal line. The Yellow Wrasse is peaceful towards other fish and does well in the home aquarium. It enjoys lots of rockwork to swim around and it will accept most fish foods.The Wrasse family of fish is a large group of usually very colorful free swimming fish. These fish are powerful swimmers using their pectoral fins to propel them through the water. Wrasses usually have powerful jaws that enable them to crush their food, which includes worms. These fish usually have long continuous dorsal fins and are found in groups in the wild. The Wrasses are one of the few fish that will bury themselves in the sand when sleeping or during flight. As with most Pomacanthus Angels, these fish go through extraordinary color changes from juvenile to adult. Wrasses are also able to change their sex during these phase changes.Note: This item may spin a harmless cottony substance in its shipping bag.
