The Labout’s fairy wrasse is a species that originates out of waters in the Great Barrier Reef and New Caledonia and can be found in smaller groups along outlying reefs. This Fairy Wrasse has a distinct pattern of colors that range from orange, red, and yellow, with a blue cap that covers the head and nose. Females and males members of the species appear similar in color, however, when they are courting, males exhibit a greater intensity of color. The colors can vary based on the mood of the fish.

The Labout’s Fairy Wrasse is an extremely calm, active fish that can bring color and energy to a reef or fish-only aquarium that is 90 gallons or more. They won’t bother any corals or invertebrates, making them the perfect fish to be kept in a reef aquarium. A single male is kept in a group of females, which are introduced before or even at the same time in the same manner as the male. These wrasses love to jump, which is why an appropriate canopy that is a tight fit is advised.

It is recommended that Labout’s Fairy Wrasse diet should include mysis shrimp that is vitamin-enriched and frozen as well as vitamin-enriched brine shrimp that are frozen, as well as other meaty food items, in addition to the highest quality seafood flake, and pellets.
