Overview

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 50 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.

The Yellow Fin Fairy Wrasse diet should include vitamin enriched frozen mysis shrimp, vitamin enriched frozen brine shrimp, and other meaty foods along with a high quality marine flake and marine pellet food.

Approximate Purchase Size: 1-3/4" to 3"

Customer Testimonials

Kelly W Athens , AL
I love this fish! He swims from rock to rock and has gotten used to my presence. He loves to eat pellets and his favorite snacks are when I put amphipods in front of him. He goes crazy over them. Definitely a model citizen and gets along with his tank mates.
