Goldbar wrasse

The Goldbar wrasse lives in the reef-associated, marine, depth range 1 - 30 m , usually 3 - 30 m environment.

The Goldbar Wrasse is aptly named for the subdued golden bar that divides its body from its head. Its olive-gold head, veined in contrasting brilliant blue, makes this member of the Labridae family a prized addition to almost any home marine aquarium. More

The round-headed Goldbar Wrasse is gray-blue and its head is orange or yellow with bright blue markings. A bright yellow bar edged by two black bars behind the gill plate. Wrasses are generally hardy and easy to care for. More

Native to the African coasts, the Goldbar Wrasse thrives in swallow lagoons and seaward reefs in relatively shallow to moderately deep water. More
