As it matures, the Formosa wrasse goes through many color changes and the males and females look different from each other. It requires a 6 inch deep sand bed to hide and sleep in. It will also move the rockwork in the aquarium so the rockwork needs to be secure against damaging rockslides. Wrasses are known jumpers so the aquarium top should be covered.
