Blackear wrasse

The Blackear wrasse lives in the reef-associated, marine, depth range 1 - 15 m environment.

There is a species of Wrasse, the Blackear Wrasse that can be solid yellow and is similar to a razorfish in shape and behavior. They are not common in Bonaire but it was possible that this is what they saw. That is what I told them but they were not convinced. More

We’re sorry but this Blackear Wrasse was sold on 05/07/2009 at 7:27 PM Central. Please feel free to view our other Diver’s Den® items below. What you see is what you get (WYSIWYG) for your aquarium. These are photographs of actual specimens available now. More
