overview
Don't miss your chance to procure one of the newest and breathtaking additions to the aquarium hobby, the Hooded Fairy Wrasse. First described in 2003, Cirrhilabrus bathyphilus is currently one of the most highly sought after deep-water wrasse in its genus.

Also recognized as the Coral Sea Wrasse, the Hooded Fairy Wrasse has a distinctive pattern of colors ranging from rose, pink, orange and yellow with purple-black edging on its dorsal and tail fins. The male and female of this species are very similarly colored, but when courting, the male will display increased color intensity. Colors may vary depending on the fish's mood.

The Hooded Fairy Wrasse is a very peaceful, active fish that will bring both color and activity to a fish-only or reef aquarium of 70 gallons or larger. It will not bother any corals or invertebrates making them a perfect fish for the reef aquarium. A single male can be kept with a group of females that are introduced prior to or at the same time as the male. This wrasse likes to jump, so a tight-fitting canopy is recommended.

When first introduced into the aquarium, live brine shrimp or frozen mysis should be used to entice this fish to eat. Meals should consist of a variety of enriched frozen brine shrimp, frozen mysis and other marine meats.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 1-1/4" to 2"; Medium: 2" to 2-3/4"; Large: 2-3/4" to 3-1/2"
