Hello Everyone! I have decided to list my Green Bird Wrasse today for $100. For the first few weeks if he doesn't sell im going to only sell him local. Ill consider shipping after that. You must have a 55 gallon tank or bigger for this guy. He swims around you tank every second you watch him, he loves to eat food, and loves to take naps on top of rocks. He is a great addition to any reef tank, alothough some people have problems with their green bird wrasse earing some coral this guy has never touched it one, and doesn't seem interested in it. I can post pictures if youd like. Hes about 5 -6 incjes long and a blue green color!

I'd be very careful, as reef safe does not only mean coral.. It will eat any inverts it fancies, such shrimp, snails, and crabs. I've watched one bang their shells on the rock to bust it open. They may not eat coral, but they will toss them around the tank in search of food.

Live aquaria sells large ones for 55 bucks and recommend at least 125g tank.

They are beautiful fish, I love wrasses. If you are interested in keeping them in your 55, look into the fairy wrasse family as they have several smaller more colorful variety's that don't get a foot long lol.
