Purple Velvet Wrasses are originally from the Western and Central Pacific. Purple Velvet Wrasses grow to a size of around 4 inches at full length and should be kept in an aquarium of at least 55 gallons in size to provide plenty of swimming and living room for these fish. Purple Velvet are carnivores and should be fed a steady diet of fresh shrimp, flaked food, and other meaty preparations for best health. Purple Velvet Wrasses are a bit easy to care for, and can be kept by the beginning aquarium owner with little problem. These wrasses are peaceful members of the aquarium, and should not be kept with more aggressive fish.
