Product Description

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.

Please Note:  Any new fish purchased from us or from a local pet store should to be quarantined.  All fish from anywhere in the wild can be possible carriers of bacteria and protozoa that can lead to an infection in your system, so we always recommend that you use some sort of quarantine system prior to adding them to your system.  If you have a fish only system and can medicate the whole system, you may not need a separate quarantine tank.  If you have a reef system that cannot be medicated, a good ultraviolet sterilization system should prevent any kind of disease outbreak.  We medicate our system for bacterial infections and protozoans, but because we don’’t always hold our fish for long periods of time, there is no way to be sure all the protozoan cysts have been killed.  A little bit of prevention will save you lots of trouble down the line.
