Description

8-10 cm.

The Orange-Back Fairy Wrasse originates from the eastern Tomini Bay, Sulawesi, and occurs in small groups on the reef. The Orange-Back Fairy Wrasse has a brilliant orange coloured back with a magenta coloured stripe covering the head and extending the entire length of the fish to the tail. The male of this species develops a dark red crown marking on the head. Colours may vary depending on the fish's mood. When courting, the male will display increased colour intensity.

The Orange-Back Fairy Wrasse is a very peaceful, active fish that will bring both color and activity to a fish-only or reef aquarium of 90 gallons or larger. They will not bother any corals or invertebrates making them a perfect fish for the reef aquarium. These wrasses like to jump, so a tight fitting canopy is recommended.

The Orange-Back 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.

10 cm.
