Flame Wrasse



 Thumbnail

The Flame Wrasse is also referred to as Jordan's Fairy Wrasse, or Jordan's Wrasse. The male has a bright golden body with red ornamentation on the fins. The females generally do not have quite as bold markings as the males.

A 30 gallon or larger aquarium, either fish-only or reef, with a shaded area is recommended. The Flame Wrasse will not bother corals or invertebrates, which makes them the ideal fish for a reef aquarium. These fish do like to jump, so a tight fitting canopy is required.

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