The Red Velvet Wrasse is also known as the Rosy-scales Fairy Wrasse is a native of the waters that surround the Maldives islands. This Red Velvet Wrasse is tiny and colorful, with the front of the body is colored red while the rest is yellow. As the fish grows older, the scales that are located towards their front will develop dark edges. The female’s color is subdued when compared to the brilliance of a male. The male in courtship can become almost white on the sides to convince his partner. The colors can vary based on the mood of the fish.

The Red Velvet Fairy Wrasse is an extremely peaceful and active fish that can bring color and energy to a reef or fish-only aquarium that is 70 gallons or greater. They won’t bother any corals or other invertebrates which makes them the ideal fish for reef aquariums. These wrasses love to leap, which is why an appropriate canopy that is tight fitting is advised.

The Red Velvet Fairy Wrasse’s diet should contain vitamin-enriched mysis shrimp frozen and vitamin-enriched brine shrimp frozen in brine, and other meaty meals, in addition to an excellent seafood flake, and marine pellets.
