Katherine’s Fairy Wrasse



The Fairy Katherine can be described as easy to handle, simple to care for, and is a good value. The wrasse that is priced reasonably has lots of contrast and color with its white belly with a silvery-white color and a boldly colored upper part that displays black, red, purple, and yellow highlights. Similar to most species of wrasses the female Katherines Fairy Wrasse is more muted in its hue. The serene Katherines Wrasse is a coral-safe active swimmer who can be found in every corner of the aquarium. In addition, it is recommended that the Katherines Fairy Wrasse requires a larger tank of a minimum of 90 gallons. It must be filled with coral and rock structures for exploration and hunting of small invertebrates as well as pods. Because all wrasses are jumpers make sure to have a sturdy cover for your aquarium. The Katherines Fairy Wrasse diet should include thawed mysis shrimp vitamin enriched, vitamin-rich brine shrimp that has been frozen or thawed, and other meaty meals as well as a good marine flake and pellet diet. Approximate purchase size: 1-1/4" to 2-1/4"

Helpful Questions From Clients
Frequently Asked Questions
Is hiring a professional necessary to set up a saltwater aquarium?

As a general rule, a larger custom aquarium might require installation by a professional. However, a kit from our online fish store is relatively affordable and beginner friendly. That means you should have no problem setting it up yourself.

Which saltwater aquarium fish should you choose when starting out?

Consider a yellow tang fish. This popular saltwater aquarium fish does a great job of coexisting with other types of fish you’ll find in our online fish store.

How does a saltwater aquarium differ from a freshwater one?

Saltwater aquariums require a bit more maintenance and monitoring than freshwater tanks. Different fish require different levels of salinity, pH tolerances, and temperature requirements. They also require specialized pumps, filters, and other equipment that can handle salt. We can guide you through everything you need to know to set up a healthy, thriving reef tank.

Do fish in a saltwater aquarium swim in a school?

That depends on the species. However, if it’s a fish that swims in a school in the wild, they’ll do the same in an aquarium. Some fish that swim in schools include the green and blue chromis, cardinalfish, and dartfish, for example. When ordering from an online fish store, make sure you do your research on how specific fish species behave to ensure they’ll school (or at least coexist) with your current fish.

Is the effort required to maintain a saltwater aquarium worth it?

Yes! Many aquarists dream of owning thriving saltwater aquariums. You have a tiny piece of the ocean in your home, featuring magical and exotic fish that can only survive in saltwater.
