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 75 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.
