The male Exquisite Fairy Wrasse, is green with bright red markings. Its bright red markings may vary depending on the location from which it was collected. It may also have blues, oranges, yellows, and purples decorating the body, depending on its mood.
A 30 gallon or larger aquarium, either fish-only or reef, with hiding places is recommended. The Exquisite Wrasse will not pick on corals or invertebrates, making them an ideal fish for the reef aquarium. These wrasses do like to jump, so a tight fitting cover is necessary.
The Exquisite Wrasse diet should consist of a variety of feeder shrimps, flaked foods, and marine meats.
