The Katherine’s Fairy Wrasse is considered easy going, easy to keep and a great value. This affordable wrasse displays plenty of color and contrast with its silvery-white belly and boldly colored upper half which exhibits red, purple and black with yellow accents. Like most wrasse species, the female Katherine’s Fairy Wrasse will be more subdued in color.

The peaceful Katherine’s wrasse is a reef-safe active swimmer that will explore every nook and cranny of the aquarium. With that said, the Katherine’s Fairy Wrasse requires a larger aquarium of at least 90 gallons that should be stocked with rock structures and coral for exploring and hunting small invertebrates and “pods”. Since all wrasses are jumpers be sure to have a tight-fitting cover for the aquarium.

The Katherine’s Fairy Wrasse diet should include vitamin enriched frozen/thawed mysis shrimp, vitamin enriched frozen/thawed brine shrimp and other meaty foods along with a quality marine flake and pellet food.

Approximate Purchase Size: 1-1/4” to 2-1/4”
