The Flame Fairy Wrasse is also referred to as Jordan's Fairy Wrasse, or Jordan's Wrasse. Cirrhilabrus jordani is a vibrant and stunning wrasse that adds a flash of beauty to any marine aquarium. The male has a bright golden body with red ornamentation on the fins. The females generally do not have quite as bold markings as the males.

A 90 gallon or larger aquarium, either fish-only or reef, with a shaded area is recommended. The Flame Wrasse will not bother corals or invertebrates, which makes them the ideal fish for a reef aquarium. These fish do like to jump, so a tight fitting canopy is required.

The Flame 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. Flame Wrasses and other Cirrhilabrus species are very active fish that should be fed 2 to 3 times daily.

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

Customer Testimonials

Steve Los Angeles , CA
Definitely a favorite. Currently I have 1 male and 2 females. They're very active and personable. One note of caution is that they're very sensitive to temp. fluctuations and high temps. To successfully keep, you should maintain a constant temperature under 82 degrees. After years of struggling to keep, I bought a chiller and now all is well. Highly recommended
