Overview

The Ruby Head Fairy Wrasse is a peaceful fish that will make a beautiful addition to your aquarium. The Ruby Head Fairy Wrasse has a blue body with red/orange running along the dorsal edge and a shining red face. Colors may vary to other blues and purples depending on the fish's mood. When courting, the male will display an increased color intensity.

The Ruby Head Fairy Wrasse will thrive in either a fish-only or reef aquarium of 90 gallons or larger. It needs a shaded area away from the bright lights. They will not bother corals or invertebrates, making them an ideal fish for the reef aquarium. These wrasse like to jump, so a tight fitting canopy is recommended.

The Ruby Head Fairy Wrasse diet should include vitamin enriched frozen mysis shrimp, vitamin enriched frozen brine shrimp, and other meaty foods along with a high quality marine flake and marine pellet food.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 1-1/2" to 2"; Medium: 2" to 3"; Large: 3" to 4"; Extra Large: 4” to 5”

Customer Testimonials

Heather G Tuscaloosa , AL
This is a beautiful and hardy wrasse that is completely reef safe. I've had mine about 8 months and it has grown a good bit. The colors are beautiful and this fish is very bold as it cruises around the tank at all levels in the aquarium. It will eat any food offered, even nori. It survived a parasite outbreak right after I recieved it and is still going strong. It made friends with my yellow tang and they swim together. I highly recommend this larger fairy wrasse.
