Description


The ideal setup for the Katherine’s Fairy Wrasse is an established marine aquarium of at least 50 gallons aquascaped with a generous amount of live rock and plenty of open spaces to swim. Katherine’s Fairy Wrasse is considered reef safe and should be housed in aquariums with other peaceful tankmates. A covered aquarium is a must since wrasses are known to be jumpers.

The Katherine’s Fairy Wrasse diet should include vitamin enriched frozen/thawed mysis shrimp, vitamin enriched frozen/thawed brine shrimp and other meaty foods along with a quality marine flake and pellet food.
