Orange Saddle Wrasse
The Orange Saddle Wrasse, or simply the Saddle Wrasse, is a dark green-grey wrasse with an orange “saddle” just behind the pectoral fins. Its head may be purple depending on region and maturity. The wrasse is active by day and needs to hide in rock crevices to sleep at night. Also, an area of sand for the wrasse to bury itself will ease its stress.
