Adult Creole wrasses can be seen in various colors, mainly purple or lilac with a mostly yellow to yellow-purple tail fin, the other fins are usually all yellow. Juvenile animals are predominantly purple or pink dorsally with a series of small spots.
Clepticus parrae are plankton eaters, they feed mainly on copepods, jellyfish, pteropods, tunicates, and larvae.
Unfortunately, occasionally these animals are in trade, although it is known that in particular this type is extremely vulnerable. About 90% of certain animals dont survive during transport. Consequently, those animals should be better left there where they belong, in the Caribbean reefs.
