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.
