Yellow Fin Fairy Wrasse



 Thumbnail

The Yellow-Fin Fairy Wrasse is mostly red and white in coloration with a yellow dorsal fin. The females of this species, like other wrasses in the Cirrhilabrus genus, are mostly pink with a white underside. When courting, the male will display an increased color intensity. These wrasses are always in movement, providing an endless amount of activity for either a saltwater fish only or reef aquarium.

A 30 gallon or larger aquarium, either fish-only or reef, with a shaded area is recommended. The Yellow-Fin Fairy Wrasse will not bother fish or invertebrates, making them a perfect addition to any 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 diet of the Yellow-Fin Fairy Wrasse should include a variety of flaked foods, and marine meats.
