Bold, beautiful, and brimming with personality, the elegantly-striped Red-Lined Wrasse makes the perfect addition to your showcase reef aquarium. Also known in the hobby as the False-eyed or Biocellate Wrasse, juvenile Halichoeres biocellatus and sub adults are easily identifiable by a pair of ocelli on the dorsal fin which disappear with growth.
They have an extremely varied diet, eating everything from fish eggs and fan worms, to amphipods, snails and starfish. They are almost always found in less than 100 feet of water, frequently as shallow as 20 feet. The biggest individual documented in the wild was 4.7 inches.
