Green razorfish, Xyrichtys splendens, are interesting and lively aquarium fish. They are colorful and can vary in color from primarily green with orange and red markings to pinkish red with gold markings. What really sets these Green razorfish apart is their brilliant red and green eyes. These eyes move independently and follow things both inside and outside of the aquarium. During the day, Green razorfish are constantly swimming around the aquarium, navigating around gorgonians and coral or through the rock structure. This movement adds energy and life to that aquarium. At night, Green razorfish slice into the sand and sleep buried under it, so it’s important to have a deep sand bed. Green razorfish get along well with other fish in the aquarium, but may eat smaller invertebrates. They are easy fish to maintain. They will happily eat pellet food or frozen food, along with live brine or mysis shrimp.
