The Silver Belly Wrasse, also known as the White-Banded Wrasse, is a beautiful and active saltwater fish that can make a great addition to a reef or community aquarium. Here are some basic steps for keeping a Silver Belly Wrasse:

  1. Tank setup: Silver Belly Wrasse require a tank size of at least 50 gallons with plenty of swimming room and hiding spots. They prefer a well-established aquarium with live rock for grazing and a good filtration system to maintain water quality. The water temperature should be between 72-78°F, pH level between 8.1-8.4, and salinity level between 1.025-1.026.
  2. Diet: Silver Belly Wrasse are carnivores and require a varied diet consisting of meaty foods such as frozen or live shrimp, squid, krill, and small pieces of fish. Offer a combination of high-quality commercial food specifically made for carnivorous marine fish, as well as fresh or frozen meaty foods.
  3. Water changes: Regular water changes are essential for maintaining water quality and keeping your Silver Belly Wrasse healthy. Change 10-20% of the water every 2 weeks.
  4. Tank mates: Silver Belly Wrasse are generally peaceful and can be kept with other non-aggressive fish. However, they may become territorial with other wrasses or fish with a similar body shape or coloration. Avoid keeping them with aggressive or predatory fish.
  5. Behaviour: Silver Belly Wrasse are active swimmers and require plenty of space to swim. They are known to jump, so be sure to have a tight-fitting lid on the aquarium.

Overall, the Silver Belly Wrasse is a hardy and beautiful fish that can be a great addition to a saltwater aquarium. With proper care and attention, your Silver Belly Wrasse can live for several years and thrive in your tank.
