Description

This is a wrasse that can get very large and like its name suggests, has a long sling jaw that it uses to catch fish. Females are yellow while males are darker in color. Some can reach good lengths and get pretty big. Even though they hunt fish, they usually do better with non-aggressive fish in FO or FOWLR tanks. Photo taken by Sanjay Joshi
