In the wild, the beautiful Jade Wrasse is known from shallow, protected coral reefs and neighbouring silty rubble-strewn substrates, up to a depth of around 10m (33ft), where it feeds mainly on hard-shelled prey such as crustaceans, molluscs, and urchins. This is a species that should be added to the reef tank with a bit of caution; although it should not trouble corals,
it will feed on a variety of invertebrates (see Reef Aquarium Compatibility section below). However, it can play a very useful role in helping to keep nuisance flatworms and pyramidellid snails (parasites of tridacnid clams) under control. The tank should be mature and furnished with plenty of living rock to provide feeding opportunities, shady hiding places and visual barriers. There should be a deep sand bed of around 3” (7.5cm) or so, in order that the wrasse may bury itself at night or if startled. Keep either a single specimen, or, if the tank is large enough, a good sized group of 5 or 6 individuals (ideally introduced simultaneously).Jade Wrasse, Halichoeres chloropterus available at the best price from Kraken Corals
