  • Description
  • The Yellow Banded Possum Wrasse is a stunning and fairly small wrasse. Yellow Banded Possum Wrasses start life as mostly red fish with two vertical yellow stripes, one behind their eyes and the other before their tail. Yellow Banded Possum Wrasses also have three strong black spots. As a Yellow Banded Possum Wrasse matures it starts to turn more dark brown in coloration and loses its red coloring.

    Yellow Banded Possum Wrasses only reach a maximum adult size of around 3 inches and can be kept in tanks as small as 20 gallons. Yellow Banded Possum Wrasses are peaceful fish and shouldn't bother any other fish, coral or inverts in your tank. This makes them a great addition to most reef tanks. Male Yellow Banded Possum Wrasses will be aggressive to other males. It is fine to keep on male Yellow Banded Possum Wrasse with multiple females though.

    Yellow Banded Possum Wrasses are strong jumpers and will jump out of the aquarium if they are spooked. For this reason it is a good idea to keep them in a tank that has a tight fitting lid with no holes large enough for them to jump through. Also have lots of live rock for them to pick small inverts off of will keep your Yellow Banded Possum Wrasses happy.

    Yellow Banded Possum Wrasses are carnivores and require a diet that is rich in meaty foods. Foods like mysis and brine shrimp, high quality meaty frozen foods and high quality flake and pellet foods will keep your Yellow Banded Possum Wrasse healthy and thriving.
