Greek Name: (Cirrhilabrus filamentosus)

$49.99

-

A Whip Fin Wrasse is a native of the Indian Ocean. This is a distinct wrasse due to its dorsal fin which could be longer than the fish. The body of the wrasse is an intense red hue while the lower portion is white. The dorsal fin, on the other hand, is color-coated yellow bordered by blue. Males in courtship show off their stunningly colored fins to try to convince their partner. The colors can vary based on the mood of the fish.

The Whip Fin Wrasse is a tranquil active fish that can add color and energy to a reef or fish-only aquarium that is 55 gallons or greater. If they are kept in conjunction alongside others like Cirrhilabrus or Paracheilinus wrasses, they could become territorial and even dominate other species of the same type. Whip Fin Fairy Wrasse is not harmful to corals or invertebrates, making it the perfect fish to be kept in the aquarium reef. These wrasses love jumping and therefore a secure canopy is advised.

A Whip Fin Fairy Wrasse diet should comprise vitamin-rich frozen mysis shrimp, vitamin-enriched brine shrimp that are frozen, as well as other meaty meals, along with an excellent sea flake and marine pellets.
