Fine Spotted Fairy Wrasse



 Thumbnail

The Fine Spotted Fairy Wrasse is mostly green in color with a white underside. Their body is adorned with many small white spots that do intensify depending on the mood of the fish. The male and female of this species are very similarly colored, but when courting, the male changes to various colors.

The Fine Spotted Fairy Wrasse is a very peaceful, active fish that will bring both color and activity to a fish-only or reef aquarium of 50 gallons or larger. They will not bother any corals or invertebrates making them a perfect fish for the reef aquarium. These wrasses like to jump, so a tight fitting canopy is recommended.

When first introduced into the aquarium, live saltwater feeder shrimp should be used to entice this fish to eat. Meals should consist of a variety of feeder shrimp, flaked foods, and marine meats.

Tends to be a bit more aggressive than some other fairy wrasses in my experience. Often more beautiful than photos can show.
