Be the first to keep and care for one of the most exciting new Wrasse from the depths of Fiji! Only recently discovered in 2010 by Tony Nahacky in waters over 100ft, availability of Nahacky's Fairy Wrasse is extremely limited, but we've reserved a stock exclusively for LiveAquaria® Wrasse aficionados.

This rising star's retired Cirrhilabrus "sp.1" placeholder name alludes to the fact that it was once regarded as an"undescribed" Tongan variant of Cirrhilabrus Fairy Wrasse, identified by a notable and significantly elongated first dorsal spine (compared to other Cirrhilabrus species) that whips back toward the caudal fin. Color patterns can range greatly, painting the Nahacky's Fairy Wrasse in vibrant shades of yellow, black, orange, purple, and white/pale blue coloration.

The Nahacky's Fairy Wrasse draws close similarities in appearance to Cirrhilabrus bathyphilus from Vanuatu, but is now officially described to be a separate species. It is a very peaceful, active fish that will bring both color and activity to a fish-only or reef aquarium of 125 gallons or larger. It will not bother any corals or invertebrates making it a perfect fish for the reef aquarium. The Nahacky's Fairy Wrasse likes to jump, so a tight-fitting canopy is recommended.

The Nahacky's 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: Male: 2" to 3"; Female- Small: 1" to 2"; Female- Medium: 2" to 2-1/2"; Female-Large: 2- 1/2" to 4"
