Tara’s Fave Fish Friday – Green Moon Wrasse!
Welcome to Tara’s Fave Fish Friday! Where we explore one of Tara’s favorite fish from the Solitary Islands Marine Park.
Today’s fave fish is the Green Moon Wrasse – Thalassoma Lutescens.
These cuties are abundant in the Solitary Islands Marine Park, and probably one of the most commonly seen Wrasse! They grow to about 30cm, feed on bottom-dwelling shelled invertibrates, fish eggs, and bristle worms.
I like them because they seem friendly towards us divers, and have beautiful colours!
Check out a video of a Green Moon Wrasse on our Instagram and Facebook pages.
