Dragon Wrasse

Facts and Information

dragon wrasse

The Dragon Wrasse, also known as the Rockmover Wrasse for it`s feeding pattern of overturning large rocks to find food, is a widely distributed species found from the Western Indian Ocean (including the Red Sea) all across the Pacific from Oceania to the Gulf of California.  Young specimens can be difficult to find as their color pattern mimics masses of algae and they often bury themselves in the sand to escape predation or rest. Adults practice this same behavior and should be kept in a tank with a soft bed of sand.  In the wild, Dragon Wrasses feed on bi-valves like mollusks, echinoids (brittle stars and urchins), segmented worms (also called polychaetes) and crabs and shrimp.  The scientific name Novaculichthys taenourus means "razorfish with headband" in Latin.
