Although its common name calls it a Coris Wrasse, it’s not really a Coris Wrasse, but rather is in the Halichoeres family. They get to be a 3 inches and can be kept in groups if you introduce them all at once. They will eat most types of food and will drive in the sand, so a sand bed is needed. This wrasse is often cited for eating red flatworms.
