That Fish Place
Item # 216706 / Manufacturer Part # F91 0007 0589
The Redfin Fairy Wrasse (Cirrhilabrus rubripinnis) is an attractive species with longer ventral fins than many other fairy wrasses. Males are red overall with faint stripes and bright red fins while females are more of a yellow color with a red tail.
Fairy Wrasses (Cirrhilabrus sp.) and Flasher Wrasses (Paracheilinus sp.) have a generally placid temperament and tolerate most tankmates, provided that they have plenty of places to escape to and hide to feel secure. Flasher Wrasses tend to be more active and outgoing than Fairy Wrasses and the two groups may be aggressive towards each other. Males of both groups are usually brighter in color than juveniles and females, and males will show their colors and behavior to the best advantage in the presence of a female. Regional variations and cross-breeding within each groups can make identification difficult.
Both Fairy and Flasher wrasses can usually be found around rubble piles and rockwork and should have plenty in the tank to retreat to. These wrasses are perfect for reef aquariums. Most will not harm corals, polyps or most invertebrates but should not be kept with very small crustaceans like Sexy Shrimp. These fish are known jumpers, so the tank should be covered at all times.
These wrasses will usually accept most types of small foods once acclimated. They can be fed a varied diet of flakes, frozen and fresh foods like copepods, Cyclops, brine shrimp, mysis shrimp and similar items.
