General information about the Labouts Fairy Wrasse
The Labout’s fairy wrasse is a species that originates in the water of the Great Barrier Reef and New Caledonia and can be found in smaller groups along outlying reefs. Fairy Wrasse has a distinct pattern of colors that range from orange, red, and yellow. It also has a blue cap that covers the head and nose. Females and males from this breed are alike in color, but when they are courting, males will display increased 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 both activity and color to a reef or fish-only aquarium. They are not a nuisance to corals or other invertebrates which makes them the perfect fish to keep in your reef tank. A single male is kept in a group with females who are introduced before or in the same manner in the same manner as the male. They are known to jump, therefore the use of a sturdy canopy is suggested.
