The Lined Tamarin is just another beautiful fish from the Labridae family. Their geographical range is widespread and can be found on occasion in the hobby. Anampses wrasses are not the easiest fish to keep unless you have a mature reef system with plenty of pods to eat. However, compared to many Anampses wrasses, this is one that can be kept with better success rates. They will adjust rather quickly to prepared foods. They tend to eat more frozen foods when first introduced and eventually move onto flakes, pellets, and other offerings. Photo taken by Sanjay Joshi.
