Overview

The Girdled Fairy Wrasse, also known as the Lancetail Fairy Wrasse, has a distinctive pattern of colors. Its belly is white, while the remainder of its body varies from purple to pink to a greenish-yellow color. It has a patch of pink on each side, as well. 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 Girdled Fairy Wrasse is a very peaceful, active fish that will bring both color and activity to a fish-only or reef aquarium of 75 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.

The Girdled 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.
