Minimum Tank Size: 50 gallons
Introducing the Lunate Fairy Wrasse, a serene and captivating addition to your aquarium. Among these fish, the adult males stand out with their vibrant and dazzling appearance, which surpasses that of their female counterparts.
Whether you have a fish-only setup or a thriving reef aquarium, the Lunate Fairy Wrasse will flourish in tanks with a capacity of 50 gallons or more. These fish thrive in environments that offer shaded areas away from intense lighting. Remarkably, they exhibit a commendable quality of not causing any disturbance to corals or invertebrates, rendering them a perfect choice for inclusion in a reef tank. However, it's worth noting that these wrasse species have a proclivity for jumping, necessitating the use of a secure, tightly fitting canopy to prevent any inadvertent escapades.
To ensure the health and vitality of your Lunate Fairy Wrasse, their diet should encompass a variety of nourishing options. This includes vitamin-enriched frozen mysis shrimp, vitamin-enriched frozen brine shrimp, and other meaty foods, supplemented with high-quality marine flakes and marine pellet food. Such a well-rounded diet will contribute to the overall well-being of your Lunate Fairy Wrasse.
