An active and attractive fish, the Eight-Lined Wrasse for sale is hardy, disease-resistant, and long-lived. They are also quite adept at taking care of pyramidellid snails, bristle worms, small urchins and commensal flatworms. As with all fish in this genus, they sleep in a mucus cocoon, which fortunately does not seem to degrade the water quality.
