Husbandry

Valenciennes, 1840

Xyrichtys martinicensis, also known as "the rosy razor fish ', is found mostly in open, sandy areas and seagrass meadows of south Florida and the Bahamas to the coasts of South America along the coast of Central America.

Females are often light green-gray, with a slightly pink glow anterior and diffuse light-orange to bright red stripes beginning behind the eye to the anterior pectoral fin. Adult Males lack these colored bands mostly.

Xyrichtys martinicensis lives by small invertebrates. At risk they "dive" upside down in the sand.
