The Yellowtail Wrasse may be very difficult to keep in an aquarium due to its feeding habits. Wrasses have small protruding teeth and graze the bottom taking in a variety of snails, worms, crabs, shrimps and eggs. Any hard coats or thick shells are then ground down by their pharyngeal jaws and the delicacies inside digested.
