General information about the Fairy Wrasses with Orange Back
The Orange-Back Fairy Wrasse originates from the eastern part of Tomini Bay, Sulawesi, and is found in small groups in the coral reef. The Orange-Back Fairy Wrasse is an orange-colored, brilliant back that has a magenta-colored stripe covering the head and stretching across the entire length of the fish down to the tail. Males of this species have a dark red crown marking on the head. The colors can vary based on the mood of the fish. When they are in a courtship, males exhibit a greater intensity of color. The Orange-Back Fairy Wrasse is an extremely calm, active fish that brings color and energy to reef or fish-only aquariums. They won’t bother any corals or invertebrates, making them the perfect fish to keep in your reef tank. They love to leap, which is why an appropriate canopy that is a tight fit is advised.
