Overview

The Bluestripe Fairy Wrasse originates from Vanuatu. This peaceful wrasse is red along the back with a white belly. Horizontal yellow or neon green stripes adorn the sides of the male, whereas the females have mostly a green appearance. Although subdued when compared to the males, the females still offer a striking look with a bright red stripe running along the back. Colors may vary depending on the fish's mood.

The Bluestripe Fairy Wrasse is a very peaceful, active fish that will bring both color and activity to a fish-only or reef aquarium of 90 gallons or larger. They 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 is introduced prior to or at the same time as the male. These wrasses like to jump, so a tight fitting canopy is recommended.

The Bluestripe 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.
