The Dragon Wrasse Is also referred to as the Rockmover Wrasse. The juvenile has a burgundy body with white markings. The fins are also notable in their appearance, especially the first two dorsal spines that form a “cow-lick.” The adult does not have the large dorsal spines and has a light-blue to green body with impressive darker markings. It should not be placed in a reef aquarium. As the Dragon Wrasse matures it will eat crustaceans, snails, shrimp, starfish, smaller fish, worms, and other invertebrates. It also moves the corals and rearranges the rocks in the aquarium to find food.
