The Yellow-Fin Fairy Wrasse is mostly red and white in colouration with a yellow dorsal fin. The females of this species, like other wrasses in the Cirrhilabrus genus, are mostly pink with a white underside. When courting, the male will display an increased colour intensity. These wrasses are always in movement, providing an endless amount of activity for either a saltwater fish only or reef aquarium.
A 200L or larger aquarium, either fish-only or reef, with a shaded area is recommended. The Yellow-Fin Fairy Wrasse will not bother fish or invertebrates, making them a perfect addition to any reef aquarium. These fish do like to jump, so a tight fitting canopy is required.
The Yellow Fin 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.
