The Elegant Wrasse (Coris venusta)
is a shy at first, but once it gets used to being in an aquarium it becomes more bold and will take food out of your hand. The Eight-Lined Wrasse likes to hide, so be sure to give it plenty of cover.
Like most Wrasses, the Elegant Wrasse likes to burrow under the sand or substrate in your tank as a means of sleeping and protection. Be sure to keep the substrate clean for them. It is a fish that can pick up bacterial diseases both internal and external easily.
