Green Coris Wrasse
The Green Coris is a durable fish that is safe with corals but will eat fanworms, small snails and small ornamental shrimps. Also called simply the green wrasse, Green Wrasses eat pyramidillid snails and flatworms. They require sand to sleep and hide in. They may tend to harass other small non-aggressive wrasses as adults so it is best to obtain juveniles as they assimilate to your own little aquatic melting pot.
